Suzanne L. Flynt traditionally works in historical processes of pinhole and wet plate collodion to create prints and tintypes.  She has exhibited this work at Vermont Center for Photography, Spheris Gallery, and Hampshire College. For FIVE, she combined digital photography with 19th century kallitype (or Van Dyke) and cyanotype printmaking methods. As Curator of Memorial Hall Museum in Deerfield, Massachusetts, Flynt oversees an extensive archive of photographs dating from 1840 to 2000, and authored The Allen Sisters: Pictorial Photographers 1885-1920; Poetry to the Earth: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Deerfield; and At Arms’ Length: The Photography of Masha Arms. She makes her home in Dummerston, Vermont.

Evie Lovett is a photographer and artist who describes her work as documentary portraiture.  She has photographed drag queens in Vermont; her own children; North American Indian Days on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana; the hospital in Rwinkwavu, Rwanda; Muslim Women in Paris, and more.  Her latest work uses digital media and encaustic to explore self, family, memory and history. She lives in Westminster West, Vermont.

Joan O’Beirne is an artist and educator.  She currently teaches photography at Greenfield Community College.  Her artwork is an ongoing exploration of the physicality of the photographic image.   Her use of alternative substrate materials in many permutations has been consistent in her work since her time in graduate school.   One of her series of photographs titled Onlookers employed an image transfer system that was cut into squares and reassembled onto white Plexiglas sheets.  Her Extension Cord images were printed directly onto sheets of aluminum and in her “Scarf” series she delved into installation, performance and video. Along with her work at Greenfield Community College, Joan is involved with a project at the Franklin County Jail in Greenfield Massachusetts.  She is currently making plans to teach classes at the jail in the near future.  She has taught photography at Keene State College and the Community College of Vermont, Marlboro College, the University of New Mexico and has been a long-standing member of VCP.

Christine Triebert has been working in her studio along the Rock River in South Newfane, Vermont since 1990. Her love of the rural environment is a strong influence in her photographic expression whether working in traditional, digital or cameraless processes. She is a 2014 recipient of a Vermont Arts Endowment Fund Grant, a 3-time winner of an international Golden Light Award, was included in the 2010 Spectra National Photography Triennial, and recognized by the National Photo Review. Chris exhibits in numerous galleries and shows throughout the Northeast.

Lynne Weinstein is a photographer and teacher. She has made imagery for the majority of her 50 some odd years. Previous portfolios include Nature’s Bounty, Botanicals and Domestic Pleasures. Her work has been supported by the Vermont Arts Council and The Vermont Community Foundation Arts Fund. Before teaching at The Putney School, Lynne was a long time volunteer at The In-Sight Photography Project, a photo editor at Life Magazine and a freelance editorial photographer. For many of her projects she uses a 4 x 5 film camera and enjoys the slow arduous nature of the medium. For Lynne, the 4 x 5 inspires a mindfulness that is the essence of her love for photography. Lynne lives in Putney, Vermont.
