I have shared and liked this image, and incorporated it in lesson plans.
I have seen plenty of cases where unrelated images were juxtaposed and mislabeled, then shared by third parties who aren’t aware of the manipulation, and are convinced they’ve found evidence that proves something they already believe.
As I was prepping another lesson just now, it occurred to me that I had never fact-checked this “perspective matters” meme.
These two juxtaposed photos were retweeted over 35,000 times with the caption “perspective matters”. Perspective matters, and so do dates and places… because these two photos were taken on two different days in two different places, in Paris 🔍
