What Is a Good Photograph?

EFFECTIVE PHOTOGRAPHS COMMUNICATE An eective photograph enhances our understanding of the subject by augmenting our perceptions of it. It can pictorially awaken the mind, arouse curiosity, communicate an experience, and get one to think about it. Such a photograph stimulates viewers to recognize and connect with the subject and has its own history-past, present, and future-that does not require any outside support. It can stand alone as a statement and will convey something in a way that could not be done in another medium.
