Long-time island resident and renowned photographer Kay Scott opened her exhibit titled "Village Life in San Pedro" on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at the San Pedro House of Culture.
The pictorial exhibit consists of 70 images of San Pedro when it was a small fishing village, just starting to grow into the touristic town it is today. It takes visitors back in time, bringing that nostalgic feeling to those who lived on the island and educates those who only know of the busy island of Ambergris Caye.
Kay Scott arrived on the island in 1982 and she explains that it was during her very first walks around the island that she fell in love with San Pedro and decided to come live here. Since then, Kay Scott has been taking photographs of pretty much everything that you can think of being ‘island life’ – from beach scenes, private celebrations, historic town events and the profiles of island residents.
Visit the San Pedro House of Culture, located on Angel Coral Street (Back Street), across from the Luis Sylvestre Sporting Complex, to take a walk back in time with Kay Scott’s “Village Life in San Pedro” exhibit which will be open for three weeks.
Various photographs of Kay Scott can be seen featured on Ambergris Today's Flashback Picture every week. Click here to visit Flashback Archive Gallery
