Artist’s statement: The power and integrity of the United States is based on the founding ideals of liberty, equality, democracy, opportunity and rights. As our national discourse becomes more stringent and polemic, it distorts and erodes our international influence, respect and power. By photographing coins in the waters of Lake Huron, Eismann suggests that the founding principles of the United States are at risk of being warped to the point where we will no longer recognize them.
