    16. 27. Fashion & Posing <ul><li>By studying Joe Conzo’s pictures we were able to observe the evolution of fashion trends as well as the art of posing through 1979-1982 while focusing on the Cold Crush Brothers. </li></ul><ul><li>This collection enabled us to create a visual chronology by looking at various concerts, shows, and studio portraits taken by Conzo. We chose to focus on the Cold Crush Brothers because they were the most prominent subjects of the collection. From our personal interpretation and analysis of the pictures we were able to conclude that: </li></ul><ul><li>Posing was seen in their pictures since the earliest pictures and evolved thematically in terms of complexity as their fame grew. </li></ul><ul><li>Their fashion trends followed the same pattern by becoming more complex and more charismatic as their popularity expanded. The earliest pictures show very few costumes, or coordination of outfits between the members. In the older pictures we see the appearance of showmen, costumes, glitter, outrageous outfits and themes. </li></ul><ul><li>Our interpretation was that these trends evolved according to financial abilities, popularity more than due to time. </li></ul><ul><li>By comparing the posing style and fashion trends of the Cold Crush with other popular groups of their time we realized that although they evolved through time they were not really following the fashion trends of their times, making them a unique group. </li></ul>1979 1982 &quot; People were standing around, look good, very fashionable, trend setting.&quot; Joe Conzo, April 25th 2009

    23. 37. <ul><li>“ I use the library databases much more often now; I used more effective, specific search terms; my thought processes became clearer; I learned how to find scholarly articles and not just use websites from Google.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I learned how to locate resources that are more scholarly and are better able to support my ideas. I used this knowledge to locate better sources for my research paper, including scholarly journals and encyclopedias.” </li></ul>
    24. 38. <ul><li>&quot;This community completely revitalized my teaching. I've never gotten such high evaluations from my students.“ </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;The institute has begun a slow but inexorable transformation of my teaching. . .[it] is much more oriented toward the students' discovery of knowledge and much less invested in my imparting it in the front of the classroom. It's them teasing out the questions and devising research strategies with my guidance. The results are stunning.” </li></ul>
