Lesson 16

In lesson sixteen, students are asked to consider context and audience, and how these two elements impact meaning. Gordon Parks’s first photo-essay featured in Life magazine serves as a prime example of how sequencing and context influence the meaning of photographs. Using printouts of Parks’s images, students make editing choices based on what story they want the images to tell. This activity encourages students to edit and sequence their own photographs based on how well their images fit with their chosen theme.
