This gallery contains a selection of images created between 2013 and 2015 during my quest to photograph each of the 89 named lakes in Desolation Wilderness near Lake Tahoe, CA. Through this body of work I explored the elemental qualities of wilderness. The collection reflects the scale and grandeur of wilderness and seeks to share the transformative experience of visiting these extraordinary environments. After completing work on my Desolation Wilderness series I produced a book, “The Lakes of Desolation,” containing an image of each lake. In 2016 I began work on photographing the 167 named lakes in Yosemite National Park.
