Bob Nelson spent his entire childhood summer days on Rocky Island as the third-generation son of a Norwegian fishing family.  His images – both narrative and photography – evoke that intimate connection with the Apostle Islands throughout a lifetime on the big lake.  Today the Islands have a sense of unexplored wilderness, but once the archipelago was dotted with fish camps, a few farms, quarries and other centers of human activity.
