This Apex Journal issue from 1922 is a 4our page newspaper. I found it in the bottom of my grandmother's grandfather clock. I tried to take photos from a few angles as well as some close ups of the ads and articles. There's a picture of the paper with a pencil sitting on top in order to understand the size of the newspaper. Something like this could be used in a classroom to discuss…Continue

The photos depicting children were the most interesting to me. Based on the amount ratio of kids photographs, Reg Murphy was also interested in them. The reasons I was most drawn to them were the colors and emotions of the children.
My visual essay conveys the innocence of children. The idea of innocence is…Continue

The Denver Post recently published over 100 photos of the Pacific front battles of World War II. The pictures have obviously all been digitized, and some are even in color.

I have chosen pictures of homeless veterans and a burn victim. This man's name is JR Martinez and he is now acting in a daytime soap opera. I included his picture because of the initial feeling that most people get when seeing him and the constant struggle he must have with that.
I took 60 pictures of my…Continue
