After reading The Story Behind. . . Migrant Mother, Maria Popova, the importance of a single picture became more clear. Her seemingly candid photos captured the feelings, heart and soul of an entire era. I was inspired to create a picture that told a story. While my picture is nowhere near as deep as anything Popova published, I hope you can look at it and make your own story.
Watching What is Visual Literacy showed me that visual literacy is a language that must be taught. With 90% of the information we receive being visual, it is important that we can read what is being said through what we see. In my photo, I chose to mix textures and create interesting angles. I wanted to create the unexpected, much like the red spiky sculpture in front of the traditional stone building in What is Visual Literacy. What do you see?
