In this longer essay, describe the environmental/ethical problem and reflect on your choices and the journey in making this piece (deciding which photos to include and why you sequenced them in a particular order). No original photos. Only include 8 photos you find from research, stitching them together to tell a story about your issue + 1000-word accompanying article (instead of 500 words + 8 research photos + 7 original photos w/ captions).

Notes on the longer written portion:

-A longer reflection on why this issue matters, on your direct experience of the issue.

-A more detailed description of the images you do include, weaving them together with transitions and conceptual connections.
