All You See Is Glory; Big Stars and Maritime Moments photographs by Peter Cunningham

All You See Is Glory; Big Stars and Maritime Moments photographs by Peter Cunningham
Description:

Rock n’ roll stars are paired with island photographs from Peter Cunningham’s life on Grand Manan Island in the Canadian Bay of Fundy. “Everywhere we turn, life we’ve known is disappearing before our eyes,” Cunningham said. “Whether it’s trust, values, common sense, or simply home grown vegetables, we feel familiar worlds slipping away.” In time, this island and these big stars will fade away, but Peter Cunningham’s powerful photographs have captured their beauty and glory for all time.

Peter Cunningham's work has been exhibited in New York, Krakow, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, and Berlin. He teaches “Photography as Zen Practice” in the U.S. and China, and is co-author with Peter Matthiessen of “Are We There Yet? A Zen Journey through Space and Time.” Cunningham’s teachers include Baptist fisherman Lester Tate, improvisational dancer Martha Myers, French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, Zen Master Bernie Glassman, and singer-songwriter Janis Ian.

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

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.
