Images as evidence
This picture represents the counterculture movement that was taking place in those years. The 60′s is a time period that most of the time is remembered as a period of social change, were it emerge different movements to show discontent with the conservative values of the existing society years before. In this case the photographer used this picture to represent the social situation of that particular moment. The reading suggest us that photographers play an important role capturing evidence from the perspective of any science field and can be used to break down a phenomenon and explain its rationale or characteristics, literal but also symbolic.
