Question Description

I’m stuck on a Art question and need an explanation.

Go back to Time Magazine's collection of the "100 Most Influential Images of All Time."

Select a different image (I have the one I chose last week attached below) - one that you did not select or discuss during Week 1. Describe the three major components of the image (Subject, Form, and Content).

Select an image that really "grabs you." Discuss the three major components of the image (Subject, Form, and Content) as related in our studies this week. Also, why does this image "grab you"? How does it make you feel? What does it make you think? Is there any moral implications surrounding the image?

WARNING: Some of these images may be disturbing to some viewers.

Running Head: ARTA 200 DISCUSSION BOARD WEEK 1 ARTA 200 Discussion Board Week 1 Student Name Institutional Affiliation 1 ARTA 200 DISCUSSION BOARD WEEK 1 2 ARTA 200 Discussion Board Week 1 The image I choose is The Tank Man of 1989 by Jeff Widener. The reason the photo is included in the “100 Most Influential Images of All Time” is how it shows resilience and courage in a man willing to stand up against the Chinese troops. According to Times Magazine (2020), the subject of the photograph shows the face of the courage of the pro-democracy demonstrators by one Chinese civilian. The photo is iconic because the people thought the man was going to be killed, but the tanks tried to go round him. Looking at the photograph, it is clear to detect that the form in the image shows three dimensions. There are shadows on the right side. The light is coming from the left side. Since it is day time, the light from the sun creates shadows that give the subjects in the photo form. Due to the way the light hits the subjects in the picture, it establishes lightness and darkness as indicated by Taylor (2015). This is the content of the photograph and portrays the texture of the subjects as smooth in the image. The image grabs my attention because it shows a man courageous enough to stand against a machine that would kill him. It shows human bravery during the times oppression by the government of China was at its peak. It makes me think that despite the hardship people go through, there comes a time a person has to stand his or her ground for change. The moral implication surrounding the image is the killing, torture, and abuse of government based dictatorship. ARTA 200 DISCUSSION BOARD WEEK 1 3 References Taylor, D. (2015).
