Water slides across submerged rocks in Lake Michigan placed to protect Chicago from unruly weather along the edges of the lake. Mammoth in size and weight, their surfaces quickly become covered in life. I’ve always loved photographing these surfaces for their elusive liquid quality, where rock becomes water becomes algae, each material radically different from the other, but in this circumstance, they almost become one. This is Submerged Rocks, Lake Michigan (2) from the Transformations series.
