Ansel Adams stated, “A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.” Have you ever wonder where photography first started? Have you ever wondered who made photography what it is today? What type of impact particular photographers had on photography?

What is legacy? According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of legacy is, “something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.” What makes the thought of leaving a legacy so important? For most of us, something drives our lives. Our jobs, our families, or our travels. It isn’t until the end of our lives when we are able to see the impact we are leaving, or have left on the world. Legacy, in a general sense, is completely different to each and every one of us. In Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven, legacy is easily defined in a few key characters she created. Specifically Jeevan, Arthur, and Miranda. Throughout the text, each character battles with themselves as they are not only trying to find themselves, but also trying to make sure that what the public sees is a reflection of who they believe they are.

Billy Collins appropriately created the title “Schoolsville” for this poem. The title is broken down and is imagined by readers of a little town occupied by former students who still act as they did in high school. From the beginning line, it is clear to the reader that the speaker is reminiscing his past by “glancing over my shoulder at the past,” (Collins 534). By stating, “I realize the number of students he has taught is enough to populate a small town,” also adds to the image created by the title (Collins 534). The speaker has taught so many years that his former students could populate a town.
Not all of America responded kindly to FSA’s photos and documentaries, or to the New Deal for that matter. Many claimed photographers and filmmakers along with Eastern bureaucrats sensationalized and “exaggerated the damage of the Dust Bowl, had vilified an entire region in order to score political points for the Roosevelt administration” (Dunaway, 2005, pp. 54-55). Though many alleged FSA photos were politically driven, Stryker held steadfast to his ideals and denied they served as government propaganda (Gordon, 2006; Brennen & Hardt, 1999; Stange, 1989). Some have argued the photos themselves were not propaganda, but became propaganda because of how they pushed a specific ideology on the public. Carlebach explains:
This piece is important because it is exceptional compared to well-known artists. It has an philosophical interpretation that can relate to viewers’ lives. It is visually unusual compared to other art because it does not have a specific subject, and the crypticness is fascinating because it has viewers thinking deeply about its meaning as they begin to understand the visuals. It is a substantial piece of art because if one is having a difficult time in life, one can glance at The Deep and feel a sense of comfort of not feeling
This photograph describes what Haiti looks like for miles. Destruction and devastation. The lost, worried family and the remains of the hurricane are the most prominent elements of this photograph. When looking at this picture the eye is drawn the the dirty, young girl. She expresses sadness and concern. Then the eyes meets the mother figure, thinking intensely, possibly about the person taking the picture or thinking about how to start over and repair what is lost. Lastly, the eye moves to the background, where a middle aged man is busy, as if he is trying to find a way to clean up or restore the unfixable damage. The clothes and belongs strung across the wooden frame symbolize life; once put together and neat, but now messy and imparable.
"Photography does not create eternity, as art does, it embalms time, rescuing it simply from its proper corruption. The aesthetic qualities of photography are to be sought in its power to lay bare the realities."
In expositions, writers usually tend to focus on certain techniques to not only enhance their writing, but also make their audience believe in whatever they are writing. These age old techniques have been used for so long for one common goal, to create clear messages from their writing that the audience are able to connect with.

It is evident that marriage is full of ups and downs, but the way couples manage these fluctuations in their relationship determines the strength of their connection. Both partners in a committed relationship must feel the same way and work equally as hard to push through potential obstacles.

The emotional hardships and positives that a married couple endures on a daily basis are presented throughout the entirety of the poem, “Marriage”, by Gregory Corso. Corso’s poem explores the pressures and factors that influence marriage and sheds light on Updike’s short story about a couple facing divorce. In particular, Corso’s structure, examples that encourage tone, and theme can help us understand Updike’s story in a clearer way.
