Lake Superior: Edge Of Forever
The incredible expanse of the midwestern Great Lake is captured in the dramatic black-and-white imagery of Peter Scott Eide
The Ghosts Of Time
Eide’s experiences shooting Lake Superior have proven to be almost meditative for him. “You’ve got to give a lot of credit to the lake and to Mother Nature,” he says. “There are times when you’re there and you know you’ve been given a gift. You know from standing out in the open spaces. Lake Superior is constantly moving, constantly pushing up on the shore as you’re working. You can’t capture sound in an image obviously, but there’s the pulse of the water, sliding over itself. It’s another element that adds to the moment and to the pleasure of shooting Lake Superior.”
Asked if he has any plans to return to the area now that the book is finished, Eide is exuberant about future work with Lake Superior. “Oh, yeah. There’s a strong connection for me out there. I really do feel very comfortable and connected to that landscape. The cool thing, too, is that there are sections that I still haven’t dug into, that I still haven’t gotten to by kayak, for instance. It’s kind of endless, really. There is always going to be some place that I haven’t gotten to yet.”
