Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Description:

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Photographs by Federico Pardo / Interviews Vermont Folklife Center
On display through Summer 2019

Ice Shanties is an exhibition about the structures, people and culture of ice fishing seen through the lens of Vermont-based Colombian photographer Federico Pardo. Pardo’s large format color photographs of ice shanties at “The Meadows” in Brattleboro, Vermont are paired with audio reflections from the shanty owners drawn from interviews by the Vermont Folklife Center.

While Pardo’s shanty portraits provide a window into the material culture of ice fishing, the shanty owner interviews are an opportunity to engage with the human side—the personal, familial and recreational culture—of this winter activity.
