"Art transforms the ordinary to the extraordinary"

How do we as photographers manipulate what we see to function as commentators on self and society?

Using adobe photoshop we will juxtapose photographs from Yarmouth Maine USA and Beijing China to begin to think more deeply about what is similar and what is different about being a high school student in each culture.

Culture Clash !



Looking at the photos from Yarmouth Maine and our own think about what's similar and what's different and how you might portray that visually using photoshop and your imaginations.

This semester we remixed a variety of cultures
