Funeral Lakes

The musical duo of Sam Mishos and Chris Hemer has been writing and producing music together since 2018. After being floormates in their first year at Queen’s University, the pair’s personal and artistic journeys aligned - and they began capturing their fears of eco-anxiety through music.  

Funeral Lakes lies at the intersection of art and activism, creating a space for the singers to confront their negative feelings about current affairs and, at times, make political statements about insufficient action on climate change.

I photographd the pair at the shores of Lake Ontario near Kingston for Queen’s Alumni Magazine.
