Xposure 2022 Winning Images vs POY and Pulitzer Winning Images
Form, Content and Function

There are many different ways to evaluate, judge and critique images. The success of this process depends on the mental discipline of seeing, analyzing and discussing an image. It is not sufficient to say, ‘I like this ‘ or ‘I don’t like that. You should be able to discuss the technical, philosophical, compositional and aesthetic reasons why the image appeals to you and the reasons for the success or failure of a particular work.

Using photographs that won the 2022 Xposure International Photography Awards, POY and Pulitzer Prize-winning images, this workshop will present a transparent methodology that will illuminate how images function within different genres and themes.

Five aspects will be discussed: 15
1. Technical quality- Is it a good image? How is it good?
2. Subject Matter- What is being addressed? We will insist that you verbalize it!
3. Content- How is it being addressed? What probable intent did the photographer have?
4. Context- What does it mean to you as an audience?
5. How does the image function to the target audience.
