One of the assignments I give to my photography students is to create a poster/still life that tells me and the rest of the class something about them. I want them to gather a selection of objects, pictures, nick-nacks, whatever it takes to let us know more about them than we knew before, arrange them as artfully as possible, light it evenly, and bring it in to class. The above photograph tells the viewer quite a bit about me, albeit only one side, but there are clues galore about approximately how old I am, where I live, my musical tastes, etc. The students generally do a good job on this project and it often reveals surprises.
