Limits vs Enhances

I think photography somewhat limits our understanding of the truth because if it’s a close up picture and you can’t see the whole spectrum of the image you really don’t know what is going on. For example the picture of Emmet Till before and after he was lynched and beat to death shows the truth of white supremacy. I believe in some circumstances that photography enhances our understand and other times it does not you need the background story to fully grasp the picture.

  1. I think you can use your last sentence from above as the thesis for your essay. You’ve already connected to the Till case. What other information from our readings can you use to help you support and counter your point?
