Tucked away in boxes, displayed on the wall, or saved to the cloud, personal photos are all around us. For nations like Canada, family photographs are often linked to the immigration experience. They offer an important window into our history and lived experience. Art historian Dr. Deepali Dewan of the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto joins us for this episode of the show. She’s the curator of a new exhibit at the ROM called The Family Camera, which explores the relationship between photography and family, and looks at family photographs as a cultural practice through the lens of migration. Ontario listeners should note that on that show notes page for this episode you can learn how to enter to win a pass for four to the ROM so you can see The Family Camera and the many other great collections at the museum.
