Making Puns on Martin Parr

For this project, the kids were told to "change up" Martin Parr's photographs with a drawing.  This was a 6th grade project.  We did a trial run with random photographs that they chose online.  Then, I provided them with numerous copies of Martin Parr's photographs to do their projects.
 
Who is Martin Parr?
 
After we looked at Parr's work, I tried to talk about his style.  I encouraged them to find their style.  For the most part, the kids got the project.  My deep thinkers accepted the challenge and got really creative.
