Lake Series, January 2023

January 10th, 2023

These are photographs from The Lake Series, January 2023, a Lake Michigan photo series by Lincoln Schatz. To view the main page for the Lake Series, please click here.

Beginning in September of 2015 artist Lincoln Schatz began taking lake pictures. Dedicating a month to photographing the lake each day in morning or evening. These daily trips to photograph the lake continued past that first month. One month became two, two became three and six years later, this project continues. Those first lake photos are now the foundations of the Lake Series, a serial photographic exploration of the landscape of Lake Michigan.

Schatz has spent the last six years carefully studying this landscape. His back to the city of Chicago as he stands on the lake’s shore. Schatz shoots with a medium-format camera, capturing the lake waters that stretch away from him to the horizon line.
