Photo Descriptions
10 %

Excellent (A)

Photo captions support the concept and/or describe what is happening within or beyond the photographic frame. Paradox is sometimes achieved through the use of pairing titles or captions with images that seem to work in contrast or tension and complicate the image by adding new layers of possible meaning through combining denotative and connotative elements. The photographer uses conceptual and/or specific language in captions that function as an element of cohesion between the photographs.
Good (A-)

Photo captions clearly describe details and concepts pertaining to what is happening in the frame but generally become merely illustrative or repetitive. Generally, the photo captions are good and function as an element of cohesion between the photos.
Above average (B+)

Photo captions lack concept, clarity, descriptiveness, and details, simply stating what is already apparent in the photographs. They marginally help the cohesiveness of the photo essay theme.
Average (B-)

Photo captions were minimal or not included with project.
