The Life and Times of a TV Dinner
In Photo Vision this week my assignment was to tell this TV dinner’s story. Others in the class focused on the life and times of: a single rose, a peace sign, a twig, a straw, etc. and then determined how they wanted to present the final prints. As I documented, I certainly got lots of weird looks. I am assuming this was due to me shivering with a camera in the freezer section. However, all the questioning was remedied simply by stating that I am a photography student. I love the fact that being an art student automatically turns behavior normally deemed “socially unacceptable,” into accepted and even encouraged behavior. Can you imagine what the shoppers would have thought if I did not have my student status as an excuse?
