The Fresh Coast Project-Ed Wargin, Photographer

by on Nov.28, 2012, under digital photography education

The Fresh Coast Project is the endeavor to capture the Great Lakes on film prior to the cessation of film as a photographic medium.
Last night KARE11 (Minneapolis)¬†photojournalist Boyd Huppert highlighted Ed Wargin’s Fresh Coast Project.

The Vision
“The vision of The Fresh Coast Project is to inspire future generations of leaders, teachers, students, stewards, legislators, artists, scientists and citizens to be mindful, aware, and reflective about this vast resource. It is to promote enjoyment and celebration, respect and concern. We hope that this particular body of work encourages people to visit, explore, and live in this wonderful region. These are truly the magnificent Great Lakes, and this is a tribute to them.”

The photography is outstanding and Ed Wargin’s project is probably the last great photography adventures shot on film. Hopefully, he will finish before Fuji stops making film.

While the digital camera has taken over photography there is still nothing digital that achieves the image quality of film in the hands of a master like Ed. Go to the Fresh Coast Project website or the slide show on Kare11’s website to see some of the most amazing photos you will ever see.

Good luck to Ed and hope you finish before the film supply runs dry.
