Garnet Garcia – HW3: What’s On Your Thanksgiving Plate?


This was the first time I made brownies for Thanksgiving!! It was really fun and my little sisters helped. My father made sweet plantain and bacon-wrapped filet mignon. Apparently, he made this for his dad’s 50th birthday back in the 70s or 80s and this was his first time making the dish since, so that was really special to me.

Bethelie Rivera: What’s On Your Thanksgiving Plate?

For my family thanksgiving, we always have a combination of hispanic food for the main courses and more American type desserts (Which are not shown). Because I’m allergic to eggs, everyone is kind enough to be careful with the food choices, but could never get rid of the potato salad, it a must every year

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.
