From the earliest days of the daguerreotype in the mid-1850s, photographic portraiture has helped to commemorate events such as graduations, weddings, and personal milestones.
Kyle Hamilton, a local photographer, has sought to document the everyday 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.
