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” seems to be a meditation on broken dreams fueled by misguided thoughts that propelled them in the first place. Kenneth Dikerman
The people in Rocheleau’s book, not accidentally, are all men, surrounded by decay, subsumed by darkness. Sometimes they seem confined, peering from doorways and through windows. It’s like they are in prisons of their own thoughts, caught up in the miasma of broken promises.
Rocheleau’s work is driven by an interest in the intersection of masculinity and racism, power and hierarchy. But more importantly, he’s interested in how these things conspire to keep humanity from its full potential. K.D
