Transcript

  • 1. Visual influences The TempestBryony McCombie Smith
  • 2. During the blitz people often took refuge in the tube stations, obviously taking refuge undergroundwhere it is safe from the bombs. During September 1940 between 150,000 and 175,000 took to thetube stations to get away from the bombs every night.
  • 3. The devastation left after the bombings. I really think that the imagery of the destroyed cities is really important. The descructioncreates a really strong image.
  • 4. A rail way tunnel reassigned as a public air raid shelter.During the war brought people together, in terriblecircumstances, some times it brought out the best in peoplebut not all of the time.
  • 5. Children being evacuated, passing troops arriving. I love the contrast in the photo, it signifies how during the blitz London becamea war zone, as they are bringing in the soldiers to protect the people.
  • 6. War time heath hints poster issued by the government.
  • 7. The black and white images from the 1940s are always so classic, they give a glamour to the people in them. However italso seems to symbolise the horror and dullness of the time.
  • 8. Rationing during the war meant that people had to make do and mend. I love the style of the packaging, images like these give awindow into peoples surroundings.
  • 9. I think that this image of a ration book is so striking. It is a direct link right back to the real people during the war.
  • 10. People were surrounded by propaganda posters.
  • 11. The stylised imagery of these posters isexquisite. They are bold and straight forwardwith the optimum impact.
