Along the border of Minnesota and Ontario, between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods, lies a region of forests, lakes, rivers and hills. It’s a midwest landscape, not particularly beautiful, full of bugs, difficult to make your way through. Something about it is magical. National Geographic photographer, Jim Brandenburg photographed it for a project titled Chased by the LIght. In a video documenting that project, he said of this region, it’s bigger than you are, it’s older than you are, and there’s so much mystery, don’t even try to understand it. I hope that I’ve captured something of that sense.
