Art 141 Siegel: Home

A guide to help students in Rachel Siegel's ART 141 class locate images and research photographers and the history of photography.

Research presentation on a photographer

For this assignment you will need to prepare and give a team presentation on a photographer lasting at least 5 minutes but no more than 10 minutes. The presentation should include the following:

  • A brief biography, including significant events (birth, death, formal/informal education, major exhibitions, locations they worked and photographed).
  • Artist's interests and/or subject matter (portrait, landscape, persona, documentary).
  • Discussion of the work's meaning (in your own words).
  • Techniques used to create the images (how the images were made and displayed, type of camera, printing and processing information).
  • At least 12 images by the photographer with titles.
  • An analysis of one of the artist's most compelling or images from each member of the team.

In addition, you will turn in a Works Cited page with at least 3 sources using MLA format, one of which should be a printed publication (book, newspaper or magazine article, exhibit catalog). The remainder of your sources can come from a library database such as ArtSTOR, interviews or articles found online (with citations), or interviews. Images must be cited correctly using MLA.
