Writing/Essay/Journal
1. Photographer David Goldes prefers to work in a studio because his favorite subjects are physical phenomena that he won’t find walking down the street. Instead of being inspired by nature or things that he comes across, he creates a moment in time that inspires him to photograph that moment. Can you create your own inspiration?

2. Goldes’ photographs are meant to illicit an appreciation for the phenomenon of everyday life that we don’t pay attention to. What are some things in your life that you have taken for granted or not paid attention to?

Activity
