         Interpreting a Visual Text - Cozzone’s Prison Zone [boring title]!

       Chris Cozzone, a graduate of the University of New Mexico [insert comma] has made

his career as an in-demand photojournalist. He created his Prison Zone [italics] photographs to

assert that not everything is as it seems. In their article written for Prison Life magazine [insert

comma] Wynn [who?] and Cozzone state that “the drug business in the joint is as profitable and

as structured as it is on the streets” [citation? oh my God, do you mean to say you did extra

research that you didn’t have to do? I think I’m getting verklempt]. In photograph 9 nine,

[title?], the caption suggests that once a prisoner is in prison there are no consequences for doing

drugs. This photograph is in color and the viewer focus is pinpointed directly to the needle in the

hands of the convict. This [what? see rules] could propose that drugs are done in the open with

no fear of consequence. The subject of this photograph is in clear focus but we [no first or

second person] do not see a face [insert comma] so we can assume that this could be anyone in

any cell. [yes, good] The photographer properly exposed this photo and there are details in both

the shadows as well as the highlighted areas. This could further suggest that there are minute

details that go along with every drug transaction. Drug deals are made and the money gets

spread around to all those that are involved in trafficking. In one sweeping view we take in the

whole scene and are both shocked and appalled [insert comma] which is the irony of the action.

Drug dealers are out on the street and our hopes are that once we place them behind bars this

action serves as a deterrent for future offences [insert comma] which is not always the case

[insert comma] as evidenced by this telling photo. [nicely done analysis]!
