HW3: What’s On Your Thanksgiving Plate?

David LaChapelle, Last Supper from the series “Jesus is my homeboy” 2003

Happy Thanksgiving! This homework assignment is a fun one, and  adapted from my history of photography class. Share with classmates an image of something you’re eating/cooking over the holiday week. Since we just covered Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, you may want to look at parodies of this famous painting, including this photograph by David LaChapelle. Sometimes parodies evoke anger, including a fashion ad campaign that parodied Leonardo’s painting and was banned in Milan. More recently, The Daily News used a Last Supper parody for The Last Whopper cover to criticize President Trump.

Don’t forget for this assignment, you just need to post an image of something you’re having for Thanksgiving and  a short line describing it! Please only check the category #studentHW

The DUE DATE is Monday December 2, by midnight.
