He im­me­di­ately de­vel­oped an affin­ity to look­ing at life through the lens of his cam­era, and what en­sued was an ex­cit­ing pho­to­graphic jour­ney that led him to his ca­reer as a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher.

This ex­hibit will fea­ture scenes of life on the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay. “Work­ing the Wa­ter” will be for sale, and Flem­ing will sign copies dur­ing the re­cep­tion.
