Spitzer 1 Jordan Spitzer ENGL 1108 FWS – Writing About Film Nicholas Roth 2/3/10 Jeff Wall, Sexist Symbolism is of great importance in both film and photography. Figuring out what every aspect of the film or photograph, no matter how large or small it is, can better help us to know what the deeper meaning is behind the work as a whole. In a photograph or a still frame in a film, the mise-en-scène, which comprises everything from lighting to point of view, can describe how a scene or image is structured, and what the hidden meanings are. Jeff Wall, political and social photographer, incorporates many hidden and deeper meanings into all of his works. For example, in his photograph “Picture for Women,” 1979, he incorporates many of these hidden meanings. The work consists of a woman in the foreground of the image, and a man with a camera in the background, all in a shady studio. One implication of this image could be that all men are rapists and stalkers. Based on the inquisitive look on the man’s face and the possibly frightened look that the woman seems to have, this assumption can be made.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
