Elisa Chang: Think, Pair, Share
By Bradley Sakaguchi and Kirsten Kau
The most prominent difference is the focus of the pictures between the series. while the 808 series choses to emphasize backgrounds while the tourist series choses to emphasize the more on the people and uses the backdrop as contrast to make the person stand out.
My eyes are drawn to the illuminated Rainbow Drive-In sign. The sing provokes a sense of nostalgia because Rainbow Drive-In is very popular and many people can remember eating there.
All the images in Elisa Chang’s tourism project relate because the are all of people. They also have a similar composition where the person is emphasized and the back ground contrasts the photo. The photos are taken so that your eyes are drawn to the person before anything else.
