Artist Talk: Ned Castle and Federico Pardo

Artist Talk: Ned Castle and Federico Pardo

Vermont Folklife Center researcher Ned Castle and photographer Federico Pardo discuss Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture, their exhibit documenting the ice shanties on Brattleboro’s Retreat Meadows. This talk takes place via Zoom and Facebook Live.

In 2016, Pardo began documenting the shanties that appear each winter on the West River in Brattleboro. Over the course of two years, Pardo photographed the shanties using long-duration exposures, beginning his work after sunset and continuing long into the night. The resulting images, lit by both sunset and moonlight, carry a surreal quality of blended night and day. Many of the photographs are paired with audio recordings of the ice shanties’ owners, who were interviewed by Castle.

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture is a production of the Vermont Folklife Center.

This event will take place via Zoom and Facebook Live. A recording will be made available on the BMAC website afterwards.

Erik Hoffner: Seeing the Story

Erik Hoffner: Seeing the Story

Edgar Degas said, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Similarly, a story can be seen, as well as read or told. Visual storytelling brings the viewer into other lives, scenes, and events. In this online talk for novice and experienced photographers alike, Erik Hoffner will explore topics related to documentary photography and visual storytelling, including composition, shot selection, and strategies for creating high-quality images. He will also discuss lenses and general photography concepts.

Erik Hoffner is an editor for the global environmental media outlet Mongabay.com. He’s a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists, and his writings and photojournalism projects have appeared in The Guardian, the Washington Post, Yale Environment 360, National Geographic News Watch, Northern Woodlands, and The Sun, among others. Hoffner has exhibited in galleries regionally and as far away as the New Mexico State Capitol, and in 2019, his work was the subject of a two-decade retrospective solo exhibit at the Linden Street Gallery. He is also a longtime exhibiting member of the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro.

This event will take place via Zoom and Facebook Live. A recording will be made available on the BMAC website afterwards.
