Produced through an Arts Council of Rockland grant, photographer Collette V. Fournier’s “Retrospective: Spirit of a People” is a historic embodiment of four decades of her photography archives. This hour and a half presentation with a Q & A takes the viewer from black and white to color imagery and from film to digital capture. Fournier’s serial works explore themes of The Amistad: From Mystic Seaport to Nova Scotia, Post Hurricane Katrina, Travels to West Africa, and her community.

About the Artist: A luminary in the world of photography, Collette V. Fournier, has had a long and celebrated career. She has worked as a staff photographer for The Rockland Journal-News and The New York Post, and has worked in the television industry. She is currently the staff photographer in the Campus Communications Department, and has been an adjunct professor in the Photography Department at Rockland Community College since 1992.
