Meet Your Heroes is a paneled discussion with Robin Van Gyn, Desiree Melancon, and Nirvana Ortanez. On October 13th at 6:30 MST, they’ll explore what it means to be a woman in snowboarding.
Last winter photographer and filmmaker Jérôme Tanon had the idea to spend a season documenting the industry’s most prolific female snowboarders. From Europe to North America he photographed female riders in the streets, backcountry, and in the park. After compiling an impressive collection of images, Tanon created a book called Heroes. His hope was to explore and examine what it means to be a female in snowboarding. On top of his powerful imagery, the riders contributed art and essays that reflect on their experiences.
