  18. 18. Analysis of One Key Artwork<br />Title- Firefighters at Work, Sabotaged Oil Wells in Kuwait<br />Date- 1991<br />
  19. 19. Content- There are two brave firefighters in this picture who have just finished closing a once leaking Kuwaiti oil well. They are both soaked with oil and look as though they have just completed an onerous task.<br />Composition- This picture is composed of two firefighters, one damaged oil well and a field full of oil<br />Technical Qualities- The aperture is low and therefore the picture has a lack of light.<br />Psychological Qualities- This picture will have a tremendous impact on the millions of people who supported an end to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. It shows the suffering which the coalition forces had to encounter in their attempt to bring peace through the gulf war.<br />Emotional Qualities- People feel sad that this type of suffering is happening in the world. It will especially emotionally affect the citizens of the countries who supported the coalition forces, because it is their people who are suffering like this<br />
  20. 20. Personal Response<br />What I personally liked so much about this photograph was that:<br />It conveys the message and true reality of what many brave Canadian men and women had to go through to bring and end to the Gulf War<br />It shows the ugly side of war, and therefore it will increase peoples opposition to future wars<br />What caught my imagination was that:<br />This pictures shows firefighters covered in oil and therefore made me imagine the suffering which oil can cause do to man’s intrinsic greed<br />
