The Collection Provenance
(n) the beginning of something's existence; something's origin, a record of ownership of a work of art used as a guide to authenticity or quality.
Decades ago, when Ed Wargin began his work photographing the Great Lakes as one singular narrative, it was on film. Over time, as photography shifted from film to digital mediums, he maintained his vision to complete the project entirely on film, an important agent in the narrative.
"I work with film because it requires a slow, disciplined, and artful approach to photography; these deliberate considerations allow me to form a deeper, more meaningful relationship with the landscape and the photograph." - Ed Wargin
