Overview


The 22 Apostle Islands lie off Wisconsin's Bayfield Peninsula, on the south shore of Lake Superior. The islands are rich in human history and natural splendor both grand and intimate. Reaching the islands by sea kayak, Craig Blacklock brought his camera through the labyrinths of sea caves, along pristine beaches, deep into flower-filled bogs, and up the spiral staircases of lighthouses. The resulting photographs depict the Apostle Islands similarly to how human vision and memory create and store images. Never before has the beauty of the Apostles been so spectacularly displayed.
