My work for this site has taught me a lot. I have learned how to use word press, which is no small feat (Thank you, Racheal Winterling!).
I created the third and final project individually. “The Crimean War as photographed by Roger Fenton” grew organically from the first two projects I created with Shawn, blending photo-documentation with my interest the Crimean Peninsula.
Overall, I am thankful for the chance to be part of creating Visual Rhetoric with Dr. Gregory Wickliff, and I am excited about the things I have learned. I have explored the history of the Crimean Peninsula, Lyndon B Johnson’s idealistic attempt to eliminate poverty in America, and the birth of the wartime photo-journalist.
