The first year journalism students worked on a photojournalism project based around “Impact Photos.” The object of this assignment is to create a photograph that impacts the viewer. Impact means that it has stopping power; that the photograph communicates an idea or has an interesting theme or has an interesting point of view.
The earth rotates while slowly gaining more and more eyes while the United States remains uncovered. The reasoning behind this photo is to illustrate the War on Terror since 9/11 and the international spying of the National Security Agency around the globe. Weapons in the background are positioned to emphasize the conflicts created in the Middle East due to the War on Terror.
