The Lake Series began in September 2015. It started as an impulse that became over time, a ritual. Simply put, photograph Lake Michigan each day in the morning or at night. As time passed and the series grew in scale, patterns began to emerge and certain positions along the lake became my chosen sites to work from. Each site has a special relationship to the landscape that surrounds it. Lake Series Panoramas emerged alongside the larger Lake Series collection. Lake Series Panoramas is a collection of fine art, large scale panoramic photographs of Lake Michigan taken over the last five years in all seasons and weather.
Lake Series Panoramas: Triptychs
Early one May morning in the spring of 2016, I took a pair of photographs that would be the impetus for a separate body of work that expands the frame from the Lake Series in order to create large panoramic photographs of Lake Michigan. An accidental diptych that revealed the possibility for what has become the Lake Series Panoramas.

Each panoramic photograph is a composite of multiple individual photographs taken with a medium format camera, that capture the lake, sky and horizon in a series of panels that allow for expansive views of Lake Michigan when edited and joined together later in studio.

The possibilities presented by the panoramic format have allowed me to create these photographs at a previously unattainable scale for public, private and corporate collections. The years I spent making large scale sculpture and interactive digital environments inform how I think about the relationships between the work and the site. I love the challenge and potential that comes with each project and working with clients to find solutions for their spaces and lives.

Each is a unique study of the surface of the lake and the sky that sits above it, allowing viewers to experience the lake in an entirely new way.
