Snow lays lightly on the sand as it drifts on the beach that leads you to the edge of Lake Michigan. With this photograph, Shore 1, and with all the photographs in The Shore series, I’m interested in studying the balance between humans and the lake. This afternoon, deep in winter, what stood out to me was the delicacy of the entire scene, every material; sand, snow, cloud and water slipping into one another as late afternoon turned into evening.
