expressions. Paying attention to the framing in any photograph, directs awareness to parts of the picture Frayer wanted to focus on. In this case, the children and the lower part of the soldier’s body become the main focus points. Lighting and focus also makes the children’s faces and the soldier’s body the main aspects of the photo to pay attention to. The soft lighting shines on the children’s faces as well as the soldier’s uniform. In addition, the background of the photograph is blurred, making the children and soldier ‘pop’ forward in the photo. This photograph was taken in an attempt to show what our solders are like over seas with the civilians. After analyzing all of this visual rhetoric, the question of the target audience needs to be answered. The audience for this photograph covers a wide spread of people. Most Americans would find this photograph intriguing because many citizens have loved ones over seas fighting for our freedom. Young children could also be part of the audience since there are young Afghan children being shown. Many children also have their mothers or fathers over seas fighting in this war. Along with children being apart of the audience, adults are mostly likely intrigued with this picture. Many people in America have become prejudice towards Middle Eastern races because of 9/11, but with this picture, the prejudice could somewhat decline because of these innocent civilian faces.

However, this next picture depicts a much more devastating result that has happened a copious amount of times throughout these past ten years. Gurinder Osan was the photographer for this photograph taken March 25, 2003. Osan is a photographer that specializes in landscape and social documentary photography. This photo published in U.S.A. Today is one of many exhibiting the realities of war. Too many of our soldiers have died in the last ten years over seas in the War on Terror.

Six American men lost their lives due to this helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan. To analyze this photo, there will be the same types of

    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.
