The Great Lakes Film Collection, Sample Series No. 7

Over the decades, Ed Wargin has dedicated his career to making fine art narrative photographs of the Great Lakes Coastal Districts. In 1987, he established The Fresh Coast Project in the effort to create extensive photographic film studies on the natural Great Lakes landscape. Thirty years later, the resulting archive is known as The Great Lakes Film Collection.
