A contemporary art photography series by artist Lincoln Schatz that explores the daily changes of Lake Michigan since September 2015.

Lake Michigan is always and never the same. It is the nature of change. Its depths reflect a human truth: we are constantly evolving even as we stand in the same skin. Photographing Lake Michigan is my daily ritual. I witness its shifts and moods. By capturing discrete moments, I chronicle the passage of time. There is no constant, there is no end. LAKE SERIES is an ongoing exploration that began in September 2015.  Information on the print edition can be found here.

A selection of photographs from the Lake Series appear in the book TransienceCadence, a new video by Lincoln Schatz, that meditates upon Lake Michigan over the course of June to July in 2019 can be seen here and a new collection of photographs focused on the colors of spring, entitled The Emotional Power of Color, can be seen here.
