Images and social analysis

Photographs as social analysis

What you will not be able to do:

Find information about your photographer in these databases. 

So how to you demonstrate a connection between your photographer's work and sociology like your assignment asks?

Try thinking about a social issue your photographer depicts (poverty, violence, war), or a group of people (the elderly, the disabled). Search those terms thinking specifically about the time period in which your photographer is working (databases allow you to limit by year).
