Portraits of a People
Dolores Breau’s photographs serve to remind us that in our increasingly complex world of the late twentieth century, there are still communities of men and women whose lives are profoundly rooted in the traditions of family, church, music, and land and yet at the same time completely part of the modern age. Acadians have mastered the arts of preserving, transforming and adapting, and consequently, are very much citizens of our time.
Dolores Breau’s work was the first work by an Acadian photographer to be acquired by the National Archives of Canada
