Arts Calendar: Photography in Southern Vermont
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.
