The Taxona Camera Photographs

Michael Loderstedt photo book

Using a 1954 era camera called the Zeiss Taxona, artist Michael Loderstedt has been documenting the transient light, weather, and vernacular details of his street in Cleveland, Ohio which borders Lake Erie.

This neighborhood, originally built of 1900's vacation homes for a German grocer's association, is now home to a group of contemporary lake lovers including the artist and his family.
