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

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.
