Jersey Shore Project

a photographic look at Barnegat Bay

The Jersey Shore project is a photographic look at Barnegat Bay and the people who live and work on it. Barnegat Bay is a lagoonal estuary roughly 45 miles long and 2-3 miles wide running from the Point Pleasant Canal in the north to Great Bay off Holgate in the south. Henry Hudson, in 1609, was the first Englishman to discover the bay.

This project will document those involved in clamming, crabbing, aquaculture, scientific research, environmentalists, etc. who live and work on the bay and throughout the watershed. The final product will be a coffee table photo book I hope will be of interest to everyone who has come in contact with the Jersey Shore and its people. This will be a long project – especially in this time of social distancing – but updates will be provided along with photos as the project progresses. This project is a labor of love!

“The bay gave to those people who worked there good times and bad times”.
