Sturken and Cartwright’s Practices of Looking, explains how images can be used as evidence of events. “Images are seen as ‘scientific’ when they are held to present accurate, self-evident proof of certain facts” (Sturken and Cartwright, 286). The text gives the example of the video that was taken of the beating of Rodney King by police officers in 1992, but there are other ways that images such as these can be seen as evidence (Sturken and Cartwright, 286). Benedict J. Fernandez’s 1967 photograph titled, Dissenters is also evidence of individuals who were present at the United Nations Plaza in New York City in April 1967 for Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech about the Vietnam War. Had a riot broke out on that day, this image as well as others would have been evidence of some of the attendees at the event and could reflect on the mood of the day based on the appearance of individuals in the photograph.
