The Concentration


The Concentration is a focused investigation of a particular concept.  You are required to write a concentration statement that answers the following two questions:

1. Clearly and simply state the central idea of your concentration. (500 characters maximum)
2. Explain how the work in your concentration demonstrates your intent and the exploration of your idea. You may refer to specific images as examples. (1350 characters maximum)



Below is a sample of a portfolio that scored a 5.  Johnny was a student in our NPHS AP Photo class. This only includes Johnny’s concentration images and statement.  He scored a 5 because his work is very well focused, compelling, and takes risks.
