Activity: Through The Keyhole

Activity developed by Claire Collison

This exercise encourages participants to think about how photographs provide clues to their wider social context.

With your group look at photographs of homes.

Ask Who who would live here? and request an explanation for why they have come to this conclusion.

You can also use images of objects, pets, clothes or food. For example:

Who would eat a breakfast like this?

Breakfast, Chrystal Yuen
