The Jim Harrison project, 2007-2009, contains 11x14 color and b/w prints, negatives and CDs of digital images. Krohmer and Harrison collaborated on a project to document the places in Michigan that were significant to Jim and may have been mentioned in his later books. These locations include his writing studios in Grand Marais and Leland; places he walked his dogs in Grand Marais including AuSable dunes, Estuary Beach, and Adams Trail in Kingston Plains; former homes and homes of relatives in Leland, Reed City; and places like Dunes Saloon, Hilltop Cabins. The Latch String cabin in Grand Marais was photographed as a place that Jim's character Brown Dog might have lived. Other photographs include those shot at Grand Valley of Jill Eggers, Patricia Clark, and Joyce Bahle with Harrison.
