In 2006, John Currid shipped aboard a laker for its
passage from Montreal to Lake Erie. His purpose
was to discover and then, through photographic
acts of aesthetic justice, to interpret for others an
important but largely invisible lifeline that helps
sustain the Great Lakes region of North America. In
the result, Currid’s discovery is “Lakers,” a
kingdom of steel, water, glass, and sky where
revelatory beauty draws power from ideas distilled
into existential form.
