Ed Wargin has been a professional photographer for over 25 years. Originally from Duluth, Minnesota, he shares our love of the Northwoods and of course, the Great Lakes.

Fresh Coast Project

The Fresh Coast Project is the endeavor to capture the Great Lakes on film. With decades behind the lens, professional photographer Ed Wargin has dedicated his craft and career to discovering the Great Lakes, one frame at a time. The breadth and size of the Fresh Coast consists of over 10,000 miles of shoreline running along the shores of Canada and the northern United States. In a small way, it is the goal of the Fresh Coast Project to create a sense of unity throughout the states and Canada so that as minds reflect upon this area and its landscape, people, traditions, and culture, they will have a strong visual sense of the Great Lakes region.

"So with film camera in hand and an eye on the lakes I continue with this journey, this professional quest, wrestling many unknowns as I go forward. But one thing that is known for certain, each picture made is one more that will serve the collection, and it is my hope to honor this great freshwater landscape by completing the project before film becomes a notion of the past. I hope you will join me in this attempt to capture our Great Lakes on both the American and Canadian shores in The Fresh Coast Project." - Ed Wargin
