What has resonated with me (Jacob Mark)

21 Mar

One of the issues that resonated with me was the idea of manipulation. I felt that while inadvertent the photo professor ewen showed in class of the man without a head was a great example of this. To me it showed the power of the media to manipulate reality to the point that we the students in the class were not seeing a man on the phone but rather a headless man in a booth. The fact that this was simply a photo professor ewen shot on the street stressed to me the ease with which the public could be manipulated. I thought that if this is what could be done with minimal work on the part of the photographer than the limits for manipulation seem boundless.
