Writing/Essay/Journal
Faye Passow’s stylistic prints illustrate disasters but with her signature humorous touch. Write about something in your life that seemed like a disaster until you found the funny side of the experience. Did it take you a long time to find the humor in the situation? Was someone able to help you find the humor in it?

Activity
Faye is careful not to be too irreverent in her renderings of disasters. Discuss is small groups the difficulties of trying to get others to see the bright side of a situation where there are victims. Look carefully at Faye’s prints and try to figure out what makes her uniquely able to bring out the humor in traditionally negative narratives, such as natural disasters.
