Where can we get stories? Well, anywhere, as it turns out. But this Mike Dunham article in Anchorage Dispatch News offers our November teacher brains food for thought, whether that means using or taking pictures, or asking students to find or take them. I have asked students to pose as participants in works of art, but now I think I’d also help them try to match clothing and other elements. And the drama pictures suggest photographing kids while they’re still in costume for school productions, but not necessarily in the given roles, but as “real” people in the world.
The photographer discusses how she started by having series of pictures tell a story, and ended with wanting each picture to tell a story; her goals resemble our “One-Word Story” technique in TPRS.
