Detecting Rule Of Balance In Photography, Uyen T. Mai, Feng Liu May 2014

Detecting Rule Of Balance In Photography, Uyen T. Mai, Feng Liu

Student Research Symposium

Rule of Balance is one of the most important composition rules in photography, which can be used as a standard for photo quality assessment. The rule of balance states that images with evenly distributed visual elements are visually pleasing and thus are highly aesthetic. This work presents a method to automatically classify balanced and unbalanced images. Detecting the rule of balance requires a robust technique to locate and analyze important objects and visual elements, which involves understanding of the image content. Since semantic understanding is currently beyond the state of the art in computer vision, we employ the saliency maps ...


Gilded Age Visual Media As The Impetus For Social Change: Jacob Riis’S Reform Photography And The Antecedents Of Documentary Film, Denitsa Yotova Apr 2014

Gilded Age Visual Media As The Impetus For Social Change: Jacob Riis’S Reform Photography And The Antecedents Of Documentary Film, Denitsa Yotova

Graduate Research Symposium (GCUA) (2010 - 2017)

This study examines the birth and evolution of the social documentary genre in visual media. It suggests that a mixture of ideology, technology, and social awareness are necessary for a successful social reform. It finds that despite the limitations of technology during the nineteenth century, social documentaries were produced long before they were part of the genres of photography and film. By focusing on the work of Danish photographer Jacob Riis and tracing the emergence of film, this study demonstrates a connection between documentary film and Riis’s social documentary photography and public slide exhibitions. The study concludes that in ...

The World Within And The World Without Forms And Functions Of Utopia In Photography, Anne-Claire Bondon Mar 2014

The World Within And The World Without Forms And Functions Of Utopia In Photography, Anne-Claire Bondon

Arts and Letters Conference

In The Photograph, Graham Clarke writes: In the end there is no literal reality. All is construction and myth and, ultimately, self-enclosed reality.”[i] This article envisages this ‘self-enclosed reality’ as a space of possible utopias and the photograph as a consequent imagination-opener. Based on fifties and sixties American photography, this article attempts to survey the possible forms and functions of utopia in photography as well as to investigate how dystopian and utopian visions generated by photographs can, if not change, at least challenge our conception of man and society.
