Photographer Paul Bannick, who has delighted Vashon audiences many times over the past several years, will speak on “Arctic Messenger: What the Snowy Owl Tells Us” on Wednesday, October 28, at 7:00 pm. Originally scheduled for last spring as part of the Vashon Center for the Arts’ TALKS on the ROCK series, his presentation will be offered as a one-time-only Zoom talk. The Zoom format will enable this extraordinary bird photographer and author to feature several dozen never-before-published photographs from his new (Sept 2020) book, “Snowy Owl: A Visual Natural History”
“You don’t have to be a bird expert to enjoy his exquisite photography and captivating narrative,” said Mike Feinstein, a long-time fan. “His fascinating presentations and award-winning books enable us to learn about each species through images that capture behaviors rarely witnessed or photographed.”
Bannick illuminates his photographs with first-hand field accounts that include descriptions of courting, mating and raising families and young owls struggling to survive the winter and gain independence. “I enjoy sharing what I have learned about each owl’s habitat and the animals with which they share these places,” he says. “They have taught me a lot about survival and what we can do as citizens to save them.”
