Chapter 4:  Photography and the Human Body


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.
