“MY OWN GUERNICA” Paper & Presentation


Choose a photograph depicting a violent moment from an actual historical event as an example of photojournalism that is, for you, its own kind of “Guernica.” (It's VERY important that this is a photograph of an actual event from a newspaper or magazine).

Research the event you have chosen.

Also, read Susan Sontag’s article  “Regarding the Pain of Others.”

Quote from  BOTH your research and Sontag’s article as you write a (minimum) three-paged, double-spaced, typed paper about why you made this choice.

Embed the image in your paper. The reproduction of your image does NOT count as one of the 3 pages of writing assigned.
