      JIM STEPHENSON: Appropriation is somethingof a buzz word I'm going to talk to you about right now.Essentially, it's the repurposingof an existing photograph that waslikely taken by somebody else, and reusing itfor your own purposes out of its context.It has a similarity with sampling in hip-hop culture.There's a morale discussion that needsto be had I think with repurposing and appropriation.
