Guillaume Simoneau’s series is detached from the moorings of conventional narrative, speaking to travel, pilgrimage, epiphany, and discovery with a simple, selfless stoicism. The Experimental Lake Area is a unique, world-renowned freshwater research facility located in Northwestern Ontario and operated by the International Institute for Sustainable Development. The photographs are not memorial in nature, but sing nature’s praises alongside human handiwork. Time of day, experiments on the water, and scientific equipment suggest an itinerary that is at once mysterious and immanent, pungent and rich.
