“Robert de Gast’s Chesapeake” Exhibit Opens

May 12, 2017 at 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


In 1971, the New York Times said Robert de Gast’s stark, colorless photographs of Chesapeake oystermen had the power to “induce in the urban viewer a foolish nostalgia for a life he never knew and could never endure.” To celebrate the Dutch photojournalist, who died last year, this Eastern Shore museum has curated a selection of his prints depicting the rugged life of seafaring across the Tidewater region.
