Assignment 1

1)This is an example of forced perspective because you are looking at an older photograph and a photograph of one in the exact same spot. It forces you to make the connection to how things were and how they were that day.

2)I don’t think it changed how I looked at the image to read the caption on the bottom, because in the one with the two people on the chair I felt like based on the quality of the inside photo ( the one of the couple) made it seem like they could be parents or grandparents. The one of the girl however changed a little because now I know the photographer was also her boyfriend.
