Camera Angles

This whole MAGA Covington Highschool controversy has me thinking about the multimedia project. It might be worth discussing camera-perspective bias with students. There’s an interesting NPR audio bit about this where Steve Inskeep interviews Adam Benforado the author of Unfair.  It’s just a short bit, but it’s a conversation starter. Benforado talks about the tinted lenses that we see the world through, what Kenneth Burke called terministic screens. Anyway, thought it was worth sharing.
