Del­marva Re­view selects cover

The Kent Island Bay Times - - Arts & Entertainment -

EAS­TON — Pho­tog­ra­pher Jay Flem­ing’s color im­age “Sharps Is­land Light,” the lean­ing icon of Ch­e­sa­peake Bay light­houses, has been se­lected for the cover of the 11th an­nual Del­marva Re­view, to be pub­lished in Novem­ber.

“We’re pleased to se­lect a cover pho­to­graph from the sub­stan­tial work of re­gional artists,” said Wilson Wy­att, ex­ec­u­tive editor of the Re­view. “Jay’s strik­ing im­ages tell us sto­ries vis­ually through his unique artis­tic style. The iron strength of ‘Sharps Is­land Light,’ ris­ing 35 feet above the Ch­e­sa­peake, com­pli­ments a fo­lio of com­pelling prose and poetry that will last beyond our life­times.”

Flem­ing, 31, is a pro­fes­sional fine art pho­tog­ra­pher who learned his craft from two pow­er­ful sources, his dogged self-per­sis­tence and the tute­lage of his pho­tog­ra­pher fa­ther, Kevin Flem­ing, an­other pro­fes­sional artist and for­mer Na­tional Geo­graphic pho­tog­ra­pher.

With a stu­dio in An­napo­lis, Jay Flem­ing’s im­ages have been fea­tured in many mag­a­zines and ex­hib­ited in fine art gal­leries through­out the Ch­e­sa­peake re­gion. His first book of pho­tog­ra­phy, “Work­ing the Wa­ter,” was pub­lished in 2016. A sec­ond book, “Is­land Life,” is sched­uled for 2020.

Del­marva Re­view is a non­profit lit­er­ary jour­nal pub­lished in print and e-book edi­tions by the Del­marva Re­view Lit­er­ary Fun Inc.

The next sub­mis­sion pe­riod for new lit­er­ary work and cover art will open Nov. 1. See the web­site for guide­lines and sub­scrip­tions: www.Del­mar­vaRe­
