Description: Many of us look at photographs in books, magazines, newspapers, but have never really asked ourselves, “What do these photographs reveal about the local culture?”  This lesson uses photographs from various sources to create an understanding of and determine cultural landscapes of any given area.  After a discussion of photos, the students will then use this information to create their own cultural landscape from one photo.  In a class presentation, the students will compare their cultures for similarities and differences.  The idea is to find out how many different cultural landscapes the students will produce from similar photos.
