An-My Lê uses black and white in her photos to show tons of detail and to portray the mood of war. In all of these photos nobody is smiling and it has a very melancholy mood.
In a lot of the photo she has a main subject that is close up in the photograph but there is also tons of detail in the background i really like this because it is almost as if i was looking out into her photos and she makes them very visually appealing.
This is an example of how she try to tell a story within here photos. She does this by using living people and have them move which gives the viewer a live action feel. this can be shown in the blur and movement that can be seen in her photos.
This is another example of how she is trying to tell a story almost all of her photos come with a story and this one is the story of the downed plane and what the soldiers have to do to get out of there situation. in this she does that by showing the action of the people but she also includes the fog that looks like it is coming from the downed plane.
This is one of the few photos from this collection that are in color she still uses very dull colors to show how sad and depressing war is. In this photo I really like the symmetry in this photo and i really like how appealing it is with the line leading to the center person.
