Henri Cartier-Bresson, “Sunday on the Banks of the Marne”, 1939 (Zalenski/Fisher, p. 286)

This assignment continues your journey from Weeks 1-3 about learning how to see, but allowing you to not only describe but to now utilize the compare/contrast method of analysis.

Choose any one of the given pairs of photography images from the list below and compare and contrast them. This time you must compare and contrast the given pair. Use as many of these categories that might apply to these two pieces, as you compare and contrast: Line, Shape and Form, Space, Texture, Value and Light, Color, Time, Repetition, Variety, Rhythm, Balance, Compositional Unity, Emphasis, Economy and/or Proportion.

Also, and this is important, use these special categories that pertain to photography to analyze the photographic elements of the images: framing, lighting, grain, angle and/or lens depth.

For more on the compare and contrast method see: (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)

On photography analysis see: (Links to an external site.)

If you wish you can make a grid or matrix for yourself with these categories down one side and the two images on the other, then fill in the squares. Based on this matrix, then write your analysis. Do not share the matrix with us, just use it to help you write.

Select any one of these paired images to compare/contrast:

Ansel Adams, “Clearing Winter Storm”, 1944 (Zalenski/Fisher, p. 287) and

Henri Cartier-Bresson, “Sunday on the Banks of the Marne”, 1939 (Zalenski/Fisher, p. 286)


Elisabeth Sundy, “Life’s Embrace”, 1989 (Zalenski/Fisher, p. 290) and

Dorothea Lange, “Migrant Mother, Niomo CA”, 1936 (Zalenski/Fisher, p. 285) and

Remember: look closely. Look at other reproductions of the image on the web to look even closer. Be very detailed and use the terminology you are learning from your readings within each category. Withhold your interpretation of what these compositional elements mean, just focus on the descriptions, and compare and contrast them. Cite the URL of the web page you are looking at.

Challenge: Do not rely on the interpretation of any one author, including your textbook, to tell you how to “see” or “compare and contrast” this art. Look deeply at the piece for yourself, and describe what you see in detail.
