Framing meaning with text and images


Taryn Simon exhibits her startling take on photography — to reveal worlds and people we would never see otherwise. She shares two projects: one documents otherworldly locations typically kept secret from the public, the other involves haunting portraits of men convicted for crimes they did not commit.

Why is this talk important? Taryn shows the impact of images on the brain. She demonstrates that our seeing is often distorted through experience. She also demonstrates the power of semiotics. The texts will change the mean of a photograph. Place a photograph in a different context, or surrounded by text, and the image will take on a different meaning.

This is powerful discussion of framing meaning.
