"Sagatuck Dunes, Lost Horizons"

Dixie Olin's avatar Dixie Olin

Saugatuck Dunes, Lost Horizons is my entry this year. I wanted to spark a conversation about conservation. In a series of trips to the dunes in Saugatuck I began to fall in love with the area and my views have changed. I have enjoyed many walks in that area looking for inspiration and found it was all around me. I ended up with an attempt to give the viewer a peek at our beautiful shoreline. The end of the walk always ended up with a sign that told me to keep off, I was being photographed, followed and video taped and the owners of the area would prefer I walk in the water because the sand belongs to them. I was hurt by that. I wish the dunes could talk, more importantly I wish they could vote.
