Shane Rocheleau's most ambitious monograph to date, Lakeside tackles the historical contradictions of white supremacy as they are manifested in present day suburban Virginia.
“Lakeside, Virginia is a psychic landscape, a representation of countless spaces initially built to feign the ‘American Exceptionalism’ writ to redact America’s contentious reality,” Rocheleau says. “Lakeside is also a place with 11,000 people doing the best they can—ugly and beautiful things alike—while drowning in the reality that dreaming gets far less than its promise.”
Rocheleau’s three monographs—You Are Masters Of The Fish And Birds And All The Animals (2018), The Reflection In The Pool (2019), and Lakeside (2022)—are variously collected by the Museum of Modern Art, Vogue Italia Collection, Fondazione Teatro Regio di Parma, and Tate Britain, amongst others.
