Photography Day 2

Good Afternoon Photographers!

Today we are going to take a look at different photographers and their work.
I have generated a list of photographers and places to view their work. Please look through the list and look at their work. Choose a photographer whose work you would like to research a bit more.

You will be creating a Google Slide/Prezi/Interesting Digital presentation on a photographer. Focus on your layout, typography, color and balance. Design of this presentation is as important as the research you are proving in the presentation.

  • Please include 5-10 slides in your presentation. 
  • Use at least 8 pictures of their work you would like to share with the class. 
  • Artist's Name - Bio, Education, Upbringing, Art Experience
  • Did your artist work in other mediums?
  • Why is her/she a photographer
  • What inspires his/her work
  • Has your artist encountered any hardships in his/her life that are directly related to their work?

Abba Richman
Dorthea Lange
Ralph Eugene Meatyard
Richard Avedon
Iain MacMillan
David Wojnarowicz
Andy Warhol
Ciril Jazbec
David Lindsey Wade
Sarah Cheng-De Winne
Dimitris Theocharis
Thomas Kettner
Steve McCurry

Alfred Stieglitz

This is just a small list of photographers. Please continue and do your own research to find a photographer you like and would like to share with the class through this presentation.

Part 2 of this project: you need to choose one of your photographer's pieces of work and recreate it. You will then create a presentation piece placing the original and your photo together with a paragraph explaining your process of recreation.


  • Day One: Research many photographers
  • Day Two: Research and choose an artist
  • Day Three: Research your photographer and gather information
  • Day Four-Seven: Using your digital tool, create your presentation
  • Day Eight-Nine: Recreate your artist's photograph 
  • Day Ten: Edit and refine both pieces of your presentations.
