Boat People - Life on Latsch Island

Latsch Island is a boat house community of floating houses with approximately 120 residence in Winona, Minnesota. 10 - 20 people reside there in the winter. This place holds a special spot in my heart because my Dad has owned a boat (not a house) there for 22 years. Although our family never lived there, I remember visiting the island frequently as a child. In college, I did my senior photography project on Latsch Island and have wanted to re-visit this idea ever since. I feel grateful that I am able to tell these stories through a video medium after all these years.

Here are some stills that I took quickly while in the middle of shooting video.
