Look to Write

Image

This exercise is included in Looking to Write, Writing to Look, a teaching kit developed by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Division of Education.  

Tina Modotti, Woman of Tehuantepec, c. 1929

 Let’s Look:

 What shapes and patterns do you see in this photograph?

From what angle was this photograph taken? How does that affect the picture?

 Let’s Look Again:

 What might this woman be thinking and feeling? What makes you say that?

Imagine the rest of the scene around the woman. What is her story?
