Exhibition -

This exhibit is the result of the reflections of photojournalist Racheal McCaig on the magnificence of a monument commemorating the Battle of Vimy Ridge: an affirmation of a young country that has now reached adulthood and a decisive moment in Canada’s history.
This series of photographs will also be the subject of a special exhibit in Givenchy-enGohelle, France, near Vimy, in April 2017 as part of the commemoration of this battle where so many Canadian soldiers distinguished themselves during the First World War.

Supported by Claudine Lepage and Hélène Conway-Mouret , Sénatrices des Français établis hors de France 

Rachel McCaig have been interviewed notably by CHCH and TVO:
