|Abstract:||Some of the earliest pieces of evidence in art history show how people told stories
with pictures and, throughout the centuries, this habit developed with the introduction
of new techniques, themes, and tools. Given the value of authenticity that
has often been ascribed to photography since its invention, this medium had to
overcome criticism before its value as fine art was recognised. This diploma thesis
analyses in which ways photography is capable to carry narratives. It also analyses
the roles that the viewer, the photographer, and the image itself play in this process.
To do so, this work examines notable theories on the topic, the intentions
behind the photographers’ creative process, and the visual components of images.
By focusing both on ideas introduced by scholars and on photographic works –
including my diploma project Dune Mosse – the thesis underlines the importance
that social and cultural contexts have in the narration of a story.|
