Wild & Precious: A walk for Photographers and their kids


Date & Time: 
Apr 30 2017 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

Photographer Jesse Burke is the featured photographer at the Vermont Center for Photography in April, and the exhibit, Wild & Precious, brings together photos from a series of road trips traveled over 5 years by Burke and his daughter Clover. On this April afternoon, participants will join Burke for a talk in the BEEC camp classroom, and will then head out to the woods and fields. Learn how to get great photographs of kids and nature, kids in nature, and why it is important to bring the two together.

Burke is an impassioned advocate for getting kids and parents into wild places together. Burke writes, “I want my children to genuinely understand how magical the world we inhabit is and how we, as humans, are an integral part of the system. I want them to feel a deep connection to every aspect of their surroundings.”

You are invited to bring your cameras and your kids. The cameras don’t have to be fancy (check Burke’s Instagram page—he took these photos with his phone). A BEEC naturalist will keep your kids engaged while Jesse shares his tips for great pictures and great parenting. Sponsored by BEEC and the Vermont Center for Photography, this event is free and open to the public. For information visit beec.org or call (802) 257-5785.

Jesse Burke divides his time between personal art projects and commissioned work. A New England native, he currently lives in Rhode Island with his wife and their three daughters. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, where he is a faculty member. Time Magazine recently named Jesse one top 50 US photographers to follow on Instagram. He is a member of Childhood Unplugged, a cooperative group of photographers who are making an effort to encourage our children to get back to the art of play.
