Visualizing Your Identity

Assignment ends on Apr 2, 2018

Identity is among the most ambiguous subject matters a person can explore. Whether it's looking at an individual's relationship with him/herself or examining identity in the context of a larger group or culture, the challenge is to make images that thoughtfully convey something that isn't necessarily obvious at first glance. We're asking you, the Your Shot community to explore what makes up your identity, how do you see yourself through a photograph.

It is an important thought provoking question to ask, who am I? How do I see myself? How do you visualize your identity? For this assignment, we challenge you to make images that thoughtfully convey a concept that isn't necessarily obvious at first glance. We're asking you to explore what comprises your identity, and to show us that in a photograph. The Your Shot community is vast and diverse, but each of you has a unique identity that only you can reveal to us through your photography. As always, please use your caption to give us context for your photo, explaining how you feel the image defines you. We hope this assignment will be a great time to do some self-reflection as you think of creative ways to visualize your identity. 

Assignment deadline: Monday, April 2nd, 12:00 PM EST.
