Using and Sharing Images


By 2008, the projected sales of cameras will reach 1 billion-- "How is culture being transformed by the phenomenal growth of photography?"  Pedro Meyer zonezero.com


"The Western memory museum is now mostly a visual one"..."Pictures are less objects to be saved than messages to be diseeminated." Susan Sontag  in The New York Times



The range of resources for using images licensed through the Creative Commons is quite extraordinary--Students need not have access to cameras to do interesting visual work that develops critical and creative thinking, and visual and media literacies.
