The Project

Fifty Lakes One Island is an exploration--through photography and words--of the inland lakes on Isle Royale, a wilderness island in the northwest waters of Lake Superior. Fifty Lakes One Island differs from the predictable flora and fauna nature documentary in its attempt to discover the power of time alone in the wild. Blending words with images, the film brings the viewer on a transcendental journey through the woods and waters of Isle Royale.

Kessler Crane has generously agreed to match each donation, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, to ensure that Fifty Lakes One Island is successfully produced.  For more information, please see Sponsors at bottom of page.
