History / Biographical
The Family Camera Network was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada funded project from 2016-2019, that worked to develop a collection of family photographs with their accompanying stories, through conducting oral histories with national and trans-national migrants. The work was conducted out of partnering institutions, The ArQuives and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The ArQuives iteration of the project focused on LGBTQ+ migrants. The project explored the relationship between photography and the idea of family, whether biological family, or of choice. As well as demonstrating the expanding conceptualization of what family is in Canada, due to same-sex marriage, transnational adoptions, dislocations to pursue economic opportunities or prompted by political instability, climate change, or war. The project worked to document feeling about family, how family is defined and defined differently, how connections are felt through photography.
Scope and Content
Records consist of oral history interviews, their raw files from both cameras used (the one focused on the interviewee and the one focused on the photos being discussed), edited and redacted film content. The records also pertain to the photos donated, these are largely photos that are born-digital or scanned photos and records.
