Choose one photograph that was taken by a well-known photographer in the Twentieth Century (i.e. 1900 to 1999). Identify your chosen photograph by title, photographer, year, and image source, and briefly explain the reasons for your choice.

In your opinion, what is the studium of the photograph? What is the punctum? Be sure to justify your answers with reference to Barthes.

Practice Sontag’s “photographic seeing” by looking beyond the initial image to the context in which the photograph was taken, relevant historical and social events, related photography movements, and any other significant meanings. This task should take up at least half of your total case study.
