Then you should probably use the DataRepeater control. You'll find it in the Visual Basic PowerPacks section of the Toolbox. Don't be fooled by the name: controls in that section were designed by the VB team but can be used in any Windows Forms application.

I've never used the control myself so I can't really give you any details. Generally speaking, the control lets you create an item template, which in your case would include a Label and a PictureBox. You can then bind a list of data items to the control and it will use the template to create a UI for each item in the list. If I wanted to know how to use the control, I'd start here:
