Bees in Italy with Renee Ricciardi

Wednesday, April 23rd at & 7 PM, Pembroke Community Center

Photographer and colleague Renee Ricciardi has been working on a photographic series titled “Bees in Italy” where she has been traveling to farms throughout Italy documenting honeybees, their keepers, and the organic lives they 85f831c72e0be92ce6a3241ae06e8c48_largeshare. “There is an unspoken equilibrium between the bee and the beekeeper, a mutual trust and a mutual tension. I have learned how to connect myself with nature by becoming a backyard beekeeper when I was 20 years old. When I learned how to breed queen bees, I became fascinated by the control we have over nature: how humans are able to alter life but are, in essence, still powerless,” she explains. Ricciardi completed the first part of her project and recently exhibited the work at the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry. Now She is on to the second part of her project which she is trying to fund through Kickstarter. Check out her Kickstarter page here and make sure to donate to this great project!

Come hear Renee talk about her trip through Italy through stunning photography.
