For Nuit Blanche Toronto's 2017 program, the Royal Ontario Museum provided thousands of people free access to The Family Camera exhibition and offered public programming, including a Nuit Talks panel, large image projections in Chen Court, and an audio installation of "Lost Photographs" (by Samaa Ahmed, Mudit Ganguly, and Katie Micak, 2017). This event revisited the themes and content of “Missing Chapters,” a section of The Family Camera exhibition that was previously on display at the Art Gallery of Mississauga (May 4 - Aug 27, 2017). "Missing Chapters" explored the relationship between family photography and stories of loss or absence that have occurred as a result of dislocation, migration, poverty, illness, tragedy, estrangement, or even technological error.

Panelists: Jennifer Orpana (moderator), Thy Phu, Elspeth Brown, Hon Lu, and Mudit Ganguly
