I don’t know how to handle this Film question and need guidance.
In this discussion, we continue our quest to find beauty in the most mundane objects and places. For most people, picking a subject to photograph is difficult unless your teacher gives you a specific theme or image. This discussion aims to help you understand how artists/photographers choose their subject. It also aims to help you SEE beauty in everyday things, ordinary activities, or people. For this discussion, here is the process:
- Watch all 4 videos below.
Documenting everyday objects from mass graves in Bosnia. These are used to identify victims but they also become a visual archive of people once lived.

2. Choose one that made the most impact for you.
1. Discuss and explain the impact and why you are drawn to the subject/photographs.
2. If you have an opportunity to produce a series as such, what subject would you document and why?
