For the past two years, Barry Le Blanc in the Baie des Chaleurs has made it his mission to make people over the age of 90 laugh... and snap a picture of them while he's at it. Barry tells us more about this series of portraits he has called "Nineties with a Smile." We also meet one of his subjects, 92-year-old Rosaire Bujold, who lives in Maria. The series will be on display at the Cascapedia River Museum from July 31st until August 12th. Listen here.
