Exhibit Opening | I Am Fernie

Announcement Date: March 2, 2017

Fernie Museum

From the earliest days of the daguerreotype in the mid-1850’s, photographic portraiture has helped to commemorate events such as graduations or weddings, or to mark personal milestones.

Kyle Hamilton, a local photographer, has sought to document the every-day face of Fernie from 2015 to 2017 by capturing Fernie residents in portraits taken in the midst of daily life, whether they have lived in Fernie for a lifetime or five minutes.

Part of the Canada150 Cultural Series jointly presented by the Fernie Museum and the Fernie Art Station.
