Capture Kingston

On Thursday, September 14, 2017, Bring Your Thing hosted “Capture Kingston” at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning. People were invited to show off how they capture Kingston, and they did not disappoint! We saw old cameras too Kingston photographs shared at the latest Bring Your Thing. We were also happy to have local historian, Jennifer McKendry,  share “Kingston Revealed” a talk about the history of Photography around Kingston.

Bring Your Thing was happy to display artifacts from various local museums and collections, including the Military Communications and Electronics Museum, St. George’s Cathedral, the W.D. Jordan Rare books and Special Collections, and The Royal Military College Museum.
