The image in this canvas print also appears in Catherine Lange's book, "Why This Place."
After I moved to Washburn, Wisc., the idea for a photography project called "Why This Place" crystallized as I experienced the natural beauty in the Chequamegon Bay area and got to know people in the community. I asked 16 people to take me to their favorite places in nature, where I created photographic environmental portraits of them as well as landscape photos of those places.
The project, which resulted in an exhibit at the Washburn Cultural Center in 2014, was partially funded by a grant from the Chequamegon Bay Arts Council and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin. In 2016, I designed and self-published a book, also called "Why This Place," containing the 71 photographs and 15 photo essays from the exhibit.
The book is available here on Authentic Superior.
