“Portraying a Great Lake in a single image is a challenge. If you point and shoot at Lake Michigan, you just get a horizontal line—the point at which air meets water,” says artist Elizabeth G Fagan. “But in person, the Lake is a massive wilderness that’s different every day. As a photographer, I look for the moment’s visual drama.”
