Chapter 4:  Photography and the Human Body






RINEKE DIJKSTRA

PROSPECT PARK, BROOKLYN
JULY 23, 2006


This image relates to the human body and utilizing the subject as the object.  The subject of this photograph is a little girl, but she is objectified as a child.  Children tend to bore easily, especially when they are being photographed, so this is a perfect example of a child that is not interested in what is going on whatsoever.  It looks like she was stopped in the midst of her fantasy playtime to take a random photograph in which she cares little about, which is the exact nature of how children, in general, are.

  1. Excellent. I also see a disjuncture in the subject, as if her pose looks more mature than her outfit implies.
