narrative collage

Final project for Jane’s Text and Image class. Sensation of only beginning to be familiar with mixing text and image.

I enjoyed working with these goofy and serious pictures from old magazine advertising.

The narrative is not only in the words. There are layers of narrative.
The facial expressions
The colors
The types of people: gender, age, race
Where they are looking
Gestures and activities
The red lines


Words of wisdom from Jane Davies:

In the text-image realm, the concept can be as important (or more so in some cases) as the visual. AND, for the purposes of learning, for this class anyway, I think it’s more important to tackle the assignment, do the problem-solving, than to make something beautiful. You will continue [to] develop your own vocabulary of beauty.
