Like the Lange's Iconic Photograph assessment, this question asks students to engage in sourcing, contextualization, and corroboration. Students are asked to consider how the contextual information affects the reliability of Riis's photograph. They then must consider how the content of the photograph could affect its reliability. Finally, students must think of something else they would like to know about the photographer or the circumstances of the photograph to further evaluate the reliability of this photograph.
