Stock Photo Stereotypes

vaTechonlineFor this assignment, we examined stock photos and discussed how they often present stereotypes and unrealistic portrayals of social and cultural settings and events. Based on our examination, we worked in small groups to take our own stock photo-style images and use them to create a Buzzfeed-style article that satirizes, analyzes, or comments on the images.

The full assignment is included on the course website.
