5-2 Final Project Milestone Two: Proposal Assignment

Overview: In this module, you explored how the power of photography helped bring the unspeakable to light and how it helped open the eyes of the world to
the complexities of the human experience. Photography became a primary means of exploring, often undermining predominant cultural values. The visual
narratives of photojournalism mined truths and forever influenced the social landscape.
Prompt: Write a short paper discussing the thesis and theme for your final project. Your paper should include the following:
A well-supported and persuasive thesis that aims to convince the reader why the proposed project is historically significant
A unifying theme
Four to six images, sequenced and properly identified with objective info (photographer, title, date, medium, dimensions, location/collection, and link to
the website where you located each image)
Note: It is important that you use images from authoritative sources to ensure that subsequent digital editing maintains the accuracy of the original.
A visual analysis of at least two of your images
Note: Your analyses should discuss all major aspects of the work: technologies used, subject matter, thematic connections, cultural context, period
style, and formal elements.

Guidelines for Submission: Your submission should be 1 to 2 pages in length and should use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch
margins. If any direct reference is made to material from the readings, use MLA citation styling.
