I liked how you brought in the information about our current debt. I usually stay fairly up to date with politics/economy stuff and it was nice to know that others are also aware about how drastic things are now. Many times you hear the saying "We look back on history so we don't repeat the past," but if you really think about it aren't we just repeating the past now without even noticing it or because we are neglecting it we don't bring it up?
I think that you guys did a good job of explaining how iconic the five photographs were, and that they pretty much sum up the era of the great depression and the migrants who moved West.
I thought you guys did a really great job explaining how the five most famous photographs of hers were iconic. I also liked how you tied in the past to our current situation. Some things that I think you guys could improve on were your pronunciation. At times it was a bit difficult to understand what you were saying. I would have also liked to have see some of her other famous photographs, or maybe a picture of her in your PowerPoint so we could better understand who she was. I also liked that in your presentation you connected the way we can learn from her pictures and how it is a better way for us to connect to the situation at that time. Overall you guys did a great job and it really helped me better understand that time in our history.
There are issues both then(during the depression) and even present day (families living in poverty) that there are no words to explain what these people have gone through.The emotion that can be revealed in something as simple as the 5 photos in your presentation Introduced for the first time the living conditions these migrating families had to endure.these photos brought poverty to the doorstep of a nation that up to this point could only read about. The look of dispare combined with determination could never be expressed in words. kuddos to all
I thought you both did a really great job of explaining the life story of the mother in Lange's most iconic photograph. I would have like to see more pictures taken by Lange during this era as well.
You described the pictures very well and explained why the pictures where taken. I knew life back then was bad but these pictures help to give a description to people in the future.
I was not aware of who took these photos but I have seen them before. I did not realize how much of an impact these pictures had on how we can look at the past and the struggles that the poor went through.
As others have said, I had no idea who had taken this picture and was happy to find out the backstory and photographer. I feel like you could have expanded much more instead of focusing on one crucial detail.
I always saw this picture in my history books but never knew who took it. You guys did a really good job explaining who Dorthea Lange was. Great job Tyler and Keaton.
I felt that the effect of Dorthea Lange's had on society was a profound one. Her picture (the one above) appears in history books and encyclopedias through out the world. It goes to prove just how iconic and significant Dorthea Lange was.
I would never imagine the importance of this 5 photos before you guys explained it. Good job.
Really informative and descriptive presentation. Was very unique in the use of photos and the photos truly gave me a sense of how times were during the depression.
You guys did a great job explaining the woman behind all of those pictures. Previous to your presentation, I didnt't know who actually took them, or stopped to think of what the impact of her photos were.
did a great job describing the photos and why they were taken also did a great job telling why they were so iconic
