Wood River Photographer Reimagines Winter Sports Culture
Saturday, April 20, 2024


A project designed to make the future of snow sports more inclusive will be presented at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

Sofia Jaramillo will present the ground-breaking “A New Winter: Reimagining the Origin of Winter Sports Culture.”

Jaramillo describes her in-progress photography project as a fine art project that thinks critically about the Eurocentric idea of a winter sports culture that originally centered on whiteness and exclusivity in hopes of making the future of snow sports more inclusive.

The program will be followed by a reception of light refreshments and an opportunity to continue the conversation at the nearby Wood River Museum.

Jaramillo was born in the Wood River Valley and has since worked as a photographer and film director for such media outlets as The New York Times, National Geographic and The Guardian.

She pursued part of her project in Sun Valley, taking photographs on Bald Mountain and utilizing historical images, ski gear and clothing from the Wood River Museum of History & Culture for the photoshoots.

“Our museum is honored to support Jaramillo’s impactful exploration of representation and inclusivity in our community’s past and present,” said Ellie Norman, the collections specialist for the museum.

“A New Winter” is supported by Protect Our Winters, an organization tackling climate change from the ski industry’s point of view. It also is supported by the Sun Valley Museum of Art, which will exhibit the work from January through March 2025.

The presentation is free; reserve your spot at The program will also be livestreamed with a recording made available upon request at
