Movie Monday - Life Magazine and Gordon Parks

Begin Today by viewing the New York Times Lens Blog story about Life Magazine photographer Gordon Parks.

When was this photo taken? What year? What time of day?

Where was this photo taken? What place? What city? What general location? (I am looking for a three word response, last word "South")

We will continue watching Phototojournalism: The Life Magazine Way.

In your group, answer the following questions on one piece of paper. Also answer the questions above about Gordon Parks.
Please include all group members names and signatures. (Grading is easier if you include the date and period)
