Did you know the images you share on social media are in dialogue with all the images in the world, even those you don’t know about? Do you want to get in on the conversation? Then let’s meet up to share and discuss your images and how they relate to the images from photo history! Our first live Zoom meeting will build connections between your work and a broader visual culture. Atget Studio software extends our conversation throughout the week, letting you post, comment and receive feedback you’ll use in preparation for our second live Zoom meeting the following week.

Hi! Welcome to Social Studies (in photo history). Before the first class, please share your social media information with the class by creating a new wall in Atget Studio with a single image and titling the wall your social media handle. Select one if you have multiple accounts. Also, I will be asking you to share images that will be used in a future post. These won’t be needed for the first class, but I wanted to give you a heads-up, so that it will be on your list of things to do. See you soon, Accra
