Eagle Lake – Fog Impressions, 2017

These photos were shot during an artist residency in the Adirondack region in fall 2017. Some mornings I would wake up to dense fog, that would burn off only slowly, revealing the landscape bit by bit, layer by layer, and finally breaking up into wafts of clouds that would drift off and create identical reflections in the mirror-smooth lake. I was especially fascinated with lake scenes, where piers would reach out into nothingness, and colorful fall foliage would hang over a body of water that was entirely undefined in its size and dimensions. I would sleep in a boathouse sometimes, on the ground of an open boat garage – looking out over the lake. Some mornings I would open my eyes to a shiny whiteness, that seemed almost apocalyptical.
