Photograph Analysis

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:
Explain each photograph as though the reader has never seen it. What do you see?
Describe the image and the style in the photograph from the chapter. Then, do the same with your modern

Assess the two photographs in comparison with each other and share your perspective. Why did you choose to
analyze them together? What can one indicate about the other? Why did these photographs stand out to you?
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 — 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.
