For this Assignment, you will apply the concepts of photography you learned in this unit to compare and contrast two photographs from the chapter on photography to two photographs from your life. For example, the photographs from your life could be of your ancestors, smartphone photos of pets or food, travel landscapes, or family portraits. The Assignment will give you a chance to investigate the influence of culture on the photos from the chapter and the photos from your experience. The objective is to examine the influence of contemporary culture on photography by taking a closer look at specific works of art and concepts of the field.
Photograph Analysis 1:
First, select a photograph from the required reading on Photography that you would like to investigate. You will compare this photograph to a photograph from your life. Try to select a set for the analysis that you think are interesting as a pair, either in their similarities or their differences. Be creative in your selections, but be sure that you can explain both works based on the concepts in the readings and communicate to a reader why you put these photographs together.
Your analysis should include appropriate terminology from this unit, the textbook, and the following criteria:
Photograph Analysis 2:
Follow the same process you used in the first part of the Assignment to analyze a second set of photographs. Select another photograph from the chapter on Photography and another photograph from your life. Try to assess different styles from the first analysis to the second. For example, if you have pair of landscapes for Analysis 1, opt for portraits for Analysis 2 â€” or if you have chosen two photographs that are similar for Analysis 1, opt for two contrasting photographs for Analysis 2 and build that assessment.
The Assignment should be at least 600 words, and must use and cite the text as a source. Cite the resource internally and in full reference at the end, following APA style guidelines. Citation is important to build the definitions, demonstrate your research, and to make it clear which ideas are yours and which are from the source. Read the â€œWriting for the Humanitiesâ€ document in Course Home, or check with the KU Writing Center for APA style tips and other assistance.
