The photos on view in The Family Camera exhibit are selected from over 10,000 images that have been collected by The Family Camera Network as part of a public archive project.
The Family Camera Network is a SSHRC-funded, three-year research project that brings together over 25 researchers and 6 cultural and educational institutions to conduct a multi-partner scholarly study of family photographs. An important part of this project is creating public archives at the ROM and the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives that will collect and preserve family photographs and their stories.
On Tuesday, September 13th 2016, a classroom at The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) was abuzz with anticipation, as over 30 participants prepared for a vernacular/family photography workshop, hosted by The Family Camera Network and the ROM.
