Michigan’s lighthouses have now all been captured in a spectacular collection of aerial photographs. Taken over a six year period, this photographic essay is available in a creatively designed, 11″x14″, 168 page, hard cover, tabletop book. The lights and their environments are vividly portrayed, photographed with a 6x7cm medium format camera and quality lenses captured on Kodachrome transparency film.
Offering a perspective unavailable to the average person, this collection of 175 color photographs provides an extraordinary aerial view of Michigan's lighthouses and the topography of its shorelines and waters. The book, published by author, is prined in 400 line screen on a waterless press in the United States of America.
The photographs reveal the dramatic settings of Michigan lighthouses and provide a historic glimspe of their past and present condition. Spectacle Reef and Stannard Rock are light stations carved from stone a century ago. Rock of Ages and Granite Island Lights were built on rock that required blasting the surface level. White Shoal and Gray’s Reef are “offshore” lights constructed on crib surfaces. Charity Island, Waugoshance, Fourteen Mile Point and Poverty Island have been vandalized and are decayed and crumbling.
Others, such as Pointe Aux Barques, Sturgeon Point, South Manitou Island, Grand Traverse and the Lightship Huron have been restored to their original condition and are open to the visiting public. Also included are dramatic before and after photographs of the restored lighthouses at St. Helena Island and Port Austin Reef.
This photographic essay will complement the home or office of lighthouse enthusiasts, historians, Michigan travelers, boaters, aviators and admirers of photographic art.
