Pictures are worth 100 words but that does not mean that an assignment can be one picture!!!

Photographs are a wonderful way to communicate information, ideas, thoughts, themes and emotions. There is a saying that a picture is worth a 1000 words. In our next assignment you are to develop your own photoessay (using Photostory) on your culture.
As an introduction to that task I am asking you to look at the following pictures on Moodle, create a theme and then select the 10 you wish to use to best illustrate the theme. Good luck, I look forward to see your response - interestingly, the selections and themes will all be different based on which images resonate most with you as an individual and the theme you develop as a result. To get the written information on each picture go to 

Now to get stuck into that photoessay assignment on your culture.  Good luck.
