Christine Lenzen, NMU associate professor of photography, is featured on Lenscratch.com for her ongoing series titled Forever a Wilderness. She wanted to create “a visual mythos of the Great Lakes' north woods culture—particularly for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.” The title is borrowed from a disparaging statement Michigan's first governor made about the U.P. after the Toledo War. Lenzen's photos include landscapes, landmarks, rural businesses and some of the people who possess the perseverance and commitment it takes to live here. See samples of her work and an in-depth interview here.
