Images are a great example of strong evidence that a reader is inclined to trust. A photo can support the researchers reasoning. Images can advance the discussion in a research paper by highlighting all of the key points.
I thought my visual essay was well organized. I started with photos of the Navy, then pictures of families from post WWII America, and then had nautical fashion images from the 1940’s. The nautical images tied together the images of the Navy and the American Families. They showed not only the fashion influence, but also the settings and expressions on the people’s faces conveyed the feeling of that time period. As I made claims and reference specific examples from the layers of my argument, I used photos to validate what I was saying. For example, I said that America had a sense of optimism and an overall feeling of happiness after WWII. To validate that, I displayed photos of VE Day celebrations, as well as couples getting married in the 1940’s
