La Raza changed the course of history with their compelling, on-the-ground images that they published. For your assignment, please pick a topic that you are interested in – any topic whatsoever that has received media / news attention – and find an image that best represents this topic to you. The image should exemplify how you feel about this topic. You will then write about:
1. Why is the image powerful?
2. How does it exemplify your concerns on the topic?
3. What compositional techniques / terms (from the One Image assignment) are utilized in the picture?
Assuming the image is credited (and it should be if you are getting it from a reputable news source) you should include the name of the photographer. You need to also include the image in your submission. Note: if Latinx issues are of concern to you, you may use an image from La Raza if you wish. This should be answered in 3 short paragraphs.
