Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

October 23, 2020 - February 14, 2021

The appearance of ice shanties on the frozen rivers, ponds, and lakes of northern New England is a sure sign that deep winter has arrived. Federico Pardo captures the spectacular vistas and winter light of Vermont, as well as the solitude and community of ice fishing. His large-format color photographs of ice shanties are paired with audio reflections from the shanty owners, drawn from interviews conducted by the Vermont Folklife Center (VFC). 

Ice Shanties is a production of the VFC.
