Identity – Through the Lens

Tue 3rd Oct 2017 to Sat 28th Oct 2017 - All Day


A selection of previously unseen rare daguerreotypes from the 1850s, portraying the First Nation people of America and Hawaii. Attired in both European and traditional dress, was it aspiration or subjugation that decided their identity in front of the camera? An exhibition as part of the Museum’s BAME communities month (Black & Minority Ethnic).
