  • Each day starting next week you will be given new criteria to research to create a Prezi or PowerPoint presentation about the photographer you choose.
  • Examples of criteria will include biography about the photographer’s life and career, exhibitions, books, examples of work, influences, education, and subject of choice. Use websites, such as Wikipedia and search engines like Google to assist in your research. The local library can also be an excellent resource for you.
