Lake Pictures is a series of color photographs of Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes with borders on the state of Michigan and Canada. The pictures--made from the same vantage point during different seasons, times of day or night, and weather conditions--explore the changing character and nature of the lake. There is an interplay of day and season, wind, sun and moonlight upon the reflections and water's surface and the variously colored glows of the atmosphere above. Precisely bisecting Devlin's square images, the thin line of the horizon suggests the immensity of the space between these two elements, pulling the viewer into the center of the photographs where they converge.
