Reading the Pictures is dedicated to visual culture, visual literacy and media literacy through the analysis of news, documentary and social media images. We examine news and media images for meaning, trends, context and fairness, with the aim of imparting that appreciation to media consumers and professionals. We’re concerned with the visual framing of major social issues, and how images function and are affected in an age of unrelenting persuasion, promotion and variable truth.
