In the reading, The War Photo No One Would Publish – The Atlantic the majority of photos shown in it were ones that showed death or violence. Now, in my opinion, I would say the reason that they did not publish the image was because it was very graphic, and the readers would not need to see the image to get the message across of the story.
To contrast the war photo no one would publish with ArcherEtAl, they both have the same underlying theme and are asking very similar questions. As I said in the previous post “sex sells” the same goes for controversy, Controversy sells.
The image that I chose was an image that I took. I chose this picture because it shows that even a perfectly good image still might not make it into the press. This image is simple docile and is not violent, it is not controversial. And it is for these reasons that it is not put in magazines. It shows a typical day on campus in between classes , notice how there are only 3 people in the image. I personally really like the leafs on the trees it really shows that it is fall, The colors Orange, Green, Yellow, purple, they are all there.
Overall I believe that the decision to publish something or not to publish something falls on the publishing agency and if they do not like a picture they can decide not to post it.
