Abstract [en]

This essay is a case study of how pictures published in media can effect public opinion based on two theories about Media’s effects and power over the public. The essay analyses three famous images: “Napalm girl”, “Famine in Sudan” and the picture of Aylan Kurdi from the refugee situation that are currently taking place in Europe. Throughout this essay I have found that pictures do not act exactly in the way that the theories expect them to. The results showed that the theories could be used to explain aspects of the pictures effect on the public. But the chosen theories are not on their own enough to explain the complex effects that the images produced. Furthermore, are the pictures themselves analysed through semiotic and visual text analysis. My results showed that there were many similarities manly their focus on a child in need but also in how the pictures were constructed.
