Tropical Paradise? Tropical Paradise? Presentation Transcript

  • Sunsets…
  • Paradise
  • Beaches
  • Most postcards on Guam depict the beaches as a tropical paradise…
  • cigarettes But not a clean one.
  • Styrofoam plates
  • Beer bottles, cans, and Styrofoam cups
  • Images on postcards are fragmented knowledge. Most postcards are only one viewpoint
  • The photographer chooses what the audience shall see. Half-truths Half-lies
  • What the photographer chooses not to show is how trash peppers the beaches of Guam.
  • But people sure love to hangout at beaches.
  • Although it seems that people on Guam don’t care.
  • Make the half-truths into full ones… Don’t let the trash lie.
  • Tropical Paradise? By Liz Imasa
  • Works Cited • Kulesh, Robert. Hafa Adai From Guam. • Rock, Tim. Another classic sunset in paradise. • Warner, Mitchell P. A sunset from Piti, Guam
