Essential Lens: Analyzing Photographs Across the Curriculum


#10009 The focus of this photograph is a group of young children sitting tightly together on the floor in a dimly lit room reading from heavily worn books. The walls of the room are made of a woven material and sticks. There is a woven mat on the floor. In the background there are clothes hanging and additional floor mats. An older person appears to be directing the children.
