Photo Exhibit At Downtown Library


Staff report

Head to the Downtown Boca Raton Public Library this month to see a new photo exhibit by Veronique Viardin called “Pride & Honor: Native-American Indian Portraits.”

Visitors will enjoy a spirited collection of black-and-white portraits depicting modern-day faces of Native-American Indians.

Photos were taken at a pow-wow ceremony where Native-American Indians united to celebrate their heritage with feasting, singing and dancing.

“As I focused to capture the old and the newer generations dancing before me,” Viardin said. “I was deeply moved by their courageous spirits and sacred songs.”

French-Puerto Rican photographer Veronique Viardin is inspired by nature and the human condition. Driven by her curiosity, sense of wonder and love of art, she is inspired to create fine-art photography saturated with equal parts beauty and emotion.

“Pride & Honor” will run from Nov. 16–Jan. 25. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
