A paragraph (3-5 sentences) explaining how the photograph relates to an element discussed in the unit. You should start by introducing and describing the image.

Then, you can either compare your image to a specific image from the required readings or lectures OR relate your chosen image to a broader concept discussed in the readings or lectures.


Your grade will be determined according to the clarity with which the comparison is made, and not on the artistic merits of your photograph. However, your photograph should illustrate the elements discussed in your paragraph and be legible (in focus).

I have attached below the painting they're talking about but you will also use this painting as the painting you will compare to with the photo I have attached below also.
