The Bigger Picture
- Master Design
A different look at news images
News images influence the way we see the world and the people around us. Where the news provision is increasingly image-oriented, the use of news images is criticized of ‘framing’: they have a distorting and in many cases polarizing effect.
With this research I introduce a connecting role for the news image. Through in-depth and methodical research I show the potential of the news image to encourage people to talk with each other and to understand each other better.
The story that you read in a picture may say more about you than about the picture
Through participatory and co-creative methods I enable both news producers and news consumers to experience how news images can be used to collect and share stories, with the purpose of making a broader perspective visible on the ideas on social issues in society.
