Tseng Kwong Chi Collection Educators Guides

This guide includes images from and suggestions for discussing and writing about the Tseng Kwong Chi Collection at the Center for Creative Photography. Its content complements study in many subject areas, including social studies, language arts, art, photography, American studies, Asian-American studies, architecture, geography, and history. Suggested issues include: the definition of national identity and stereotyping of ?outsiders;? how art forms are influenced by popular culture; and the ?truthfulness? of a portrait photograph. Related topics include: portraiture and self-portraiture in different art media; the many ways in which we outwardly express our nationality; and a comparison of the artist?s portraits of famous places to our own travel photographs.
