About the Artwork
For the project I took some landscape and water pictures within the Penokee range. The sites depicted in the photographs represent clean water and healthy habitat. The Penokee’s have incredible natural beauty and can be a source of inspiration for artists and beyond; yet they are also imperiled as they sit in close proximity to iron ore deposits that if mined could change the character and impact the natural wealth contained in the area.
