Toronto. The AGO was the recipient of a trove of Caribbean history. To quote the AGO, “Spanning 100 years of history and featuring more than 3,500 photographs from the Wider Caribbean Region including Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad, The Montgomery Collection of Caribbean Photographs has arrived at the AGO and is now part of our Collection.”

The works will not go on display until 2021. The AGO Art Matters Blog quotes Julie Crooks, Assistant Curator, Photography. Julie spoke at the PHSC in February of last year.
