We (Photo II-IX) are planning and making typologies. Here are some ways to consider them:

Descriptive: similarities in form, consistent presentation

Explanatory: information, in order to understand

Interpretive: potential implications

Ethically evaluative: references to cultural judgment

Aesthetically evaluative: references to art, the art world; self-referential

Theoretical: explores possibilities

Make your first batch of negatives by 2/23 (which is before the street photography project).
