Revival Arts Studio hosts a red carpet photography book launch at The Reach Gallery Museum on Sunday, Nov. 6 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Imagine features individual photographs of 138 local children taken this year. Each of them signed up to be photographed for this project and donated their session fee to Matthew’s House, a respite home for children with severe disabilities being built on the Campus of Care next to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

Photographer Jason Brown said the project has been “amazing.”

“It has been a privilege to meet and photograph so many children. Each one of them is unique and I aimed to bring out their individual beauty in each image.”

All the children in the book have been invited to the book launch and will be given VIP treatment, Brown said. The book will be officially released following a brief presentation that includes speeches by Andrea Froese, co-founder of Matthew’s House, and Mayor George Peary, as well as a slideshow.

The Reach is located at 32388 Veterans Way.
