Resources for Writers: Synthesis Writing

In composition courses, “synthesis” commonly refers to writing about printed texts, drawing together particular themes or traits that you observe in those texts and organizing the material from each text according to those themes or traits.

Anthony then suggested I look at the book Basic Critical Theory for Photographers by Ashley la Grange, who has analysed this essay and posed some interesting questions. The following text is the important parts I picked out which were relevant and could be included in my paper.

Solomon-Godeau proposes an idea relating to the approach a photographer takes in order to represent a subject, to be ‘Inside’ or ‘Outside’. Diane Arbus represents the outsider approach, the ‘objective’ nature however results in a voyeuristic, tourist-like, imperialistic representation.

Inside/Out by Abigail Solomon-Godeau – Andrew Fitzgibbon

The essay is a critique of certain of Sontag’s perspectives expressed in On Photography. Specifically, how certain approaches to photography can objectify people and prevent the viewer empathising with the subject. Sontag conceptualises these approaches with an Inside/Outside model. That is, whether the photographer is inside or belongs to the scenario being photographed, or is outside as a pure observer. She describes the concept as a ‘binary couple’ (or duality) – meaning one or the other (0 or 1, on or off, inside or outside).

Solomon-Godeau does not share the same perspective as Sontag. After exploring the concept further through application to the work exhibited in Public Information: Desire, Disaster, Document, Solomon-Godeau reaches her conclusion.
