Welcome to my online collection of websites and information. With several distinct areas of interest and activity, I recently created karenvigmostad.com to connect the writings, research, and photography in one location. The focus of my life’s work has been on the Great Lakes and their islands, yet my research, writing, and photography holds other dimensions not easily captured.
- Real-estate developers and the process of development was the subject of my dissertation.
- Paris and the south of France have been where much of my photography took place.
- This year I start a five-year journey circling each of the lakes with camera, pen, recorder, computer, and dog working on a book project.
Last year also found me moving and reorganizing my life to support all this work. Thus this site is very much a work in progress, and I appreciate your interest as it evolves. Please do feel free to contact me with ideas, suggestions, and questions by email. You can follow me on Twitter on @aboutthelakes and @abouttheislands.
Thanks for joining me today,
