This is the digital journal of artist Lincoln Schatz and features new projects, experiments in the studio, nature photos, lake photos from the Lake Series, generative video art, client proposals and studio announcements among other things. Here you will find photographs from various projects that include my time spent in the Redwood Forests of California and Oregon. The incredible forests and coastlines of the Lost Coast of Northern California. The architectural beauty of Zion National Park and the expansive deserts of the Southwest. Much of this began when I first started to photograph in the Rocky Mountains of Aspen, Colorado. Additionally, there are large scale Lake Michigan panoramas and other landscapes from newer series that are from across the United States.
Lake Photos and More
In the last several years my work has focused on nature photography that explores the varied landscapes of the United States. In particular the ways in which humans and nature exist together. How we impact and are impacted by the environments that surround us. From the collections studying the forests of the western United States to, The Shore, an ongoing body of work that explores the edges of Lake Michigan to better understand our relationship, both humans and city, to this body of water.

An early morning excursion to the lake and I found it completely draped in fog. Blues and purples shifting in and out as the fog began to burn away and the sun rose in the sky this late December day.
Protected by all of the overgrowth and trees that surrounded it, this lush forest photo makes it feel as if it would become a stage at any moment, it was so perfectly framed by these branches.
Early one May morning in the spring of 2016, I took a pair of images that would create the first of these large photos of Lake Michigan.
