Becker says, “instead of cleanly edited photo essays, the tabloids are more likely to present heavily worked layouts of overlapping headlines, photographs and text.” This is a photo of a section of People Magazine where it is obvious that the photos are taken without the people in them knowing. The text is there to glorify the images when in fact they are photos of celebrities doing ordinary things. Victoria Beckham is simply grocery shopping with her daughter while her husband David is kicking the soccer ball around while his son and Rod Stewart observe. The magazine uses text such as “demonstrates his skills” to enhance the meaning and attractiveness of the image.
