Include the following: •What is the denotation and connotation of the image? •What representations are being constructed? (working for a C or above? Consider HOW they are constructed – costume, choice of model, makeup, costume etc) •Are they positive or negative? Why? How do you know? •Do they conform to a stereotype? Are they a countertype? •Who is the target audience for this image? How do you know?
