As we head into the weekend, I am happy to offer some serenity by the way of Susanne Helmert’s Lake Michigan photos. As threatened in my post about her work that I discovered at the 57th Street Art Fair, I asked her whether she’d be willing to do a guest blog, and she graciously agreed, so here is Susanne in her own words (Thank you, Susanne!):

One of the things I love the most about living in Chicago is having Lake Michigan so close by. I moved to Chicago two years ago and it was pretty much love at first
sight! Such a powerful lake, which sometimes can be as angry as an ocean and
sometimes as calm as a little pond. I never get tired capturing its different
moods, faces and colors.

But – since I’m not very good with words – I better let my photographs speak for me… I hope you enjoy!

If you want to see more, see the whole set on flickr.
