Current BA (Honours) in Visual and Critical Studies student Maya Wilson-Sanchez's text "Collaboration, Family and Photography: The Process of Creating an Installation for the Family Camera Exhibition" is featured on the ROM's blog. Maya gives an overview of the Family Camera project through her participation in the Digital Futures Graduate Program course “Special Topic: Family Camera at the ROM.” The Sesquicentennial Exhibition The Family Camera will launch at the ROM in May 2017.
The Exhibition will examine ideas surrounding the contemporary Canadian family through vernacular photography and the changing definitions of family, experiences of migration, memory and mementos. "The Family Camera" project asks the questions: What are family photographs? How do they shape our memories? How do they mediate our experiences of migration? What can they tell us about our national histories?
The Family Camera opens May 6 at the Royal Ontario Museum, 100 Queen’s Park.
