Narrative Interventions in Photography

Find Lessons

Explore the concept of storytelling in the exhibition Narrative Interventions in Photography through three distinct bodies of photographic works by contemporary artists Eileen Cowin, Carrie Mae Weems, and Simryn Gill. Weems's work offers a contemporary reading of an historical group of photographs, some of which are drawn from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection.

Adapt steps 4-6 from the lesson "Breaking the Chains Rising out of Circumstances" to have students work with historic images and give voice to a subject.

Lesson Plan: Breaking the Chains Rising out of Circumstances

Exhibition: Narrative Interventions in Photography is on view at the Getty Center through March 11, 2012.
