Transcript of Interpreting Environmental Images

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Images have the ability to have a big impact on how we view events, places and people in history. The environmental movement has been aided by the increased ability to distribute pictures all around the world. Analysing Images How to analyse an image When analysing an image there are a few questions you need to ask:
1. What is it an image of?
2. Why was the image taken (what is its purpose)?
3. How does it make you feel (what is its emotional impact)?
4. Is it successful in achieving its goal?

Remember: an image is not neutral - while it shows a certain event, person or place, it only shows us that subject through the eyes of the photographer. We only see what the photographer wants us to see. What do you think when you see this image? For many people this image showed an act of brutality. A Vietnamese policeman is shooting an unarmed, handcuffed man at point blank range. What we don't see in the picture is that the man was a member of the Vietcong, had killed dozens of others earlier that day including the policeman's family. How do you now feel about the image? Has your opinion changed? Earth Rise Marine Environments Look at the image and analyse using questions discussed earlier.

2. What images do you believe would have been the most influential in shaping how you feel about the environmental movement? Justify
