Representations analysis

  1. 1. Representations ofSocial Groups { By Deanna Hammond-Blackburn
  2. 2.  The male representations portrayed in the main image of ‘Jimmy Tyler’ match the codes of this genre music magazine; it focuses more on his personality/music than physique. His costume and pose are simple and masculine, while his prop is very feminine and is a direct link to the theme of the magazine; Valentines. This is further represented by the symbolic sign of the heart shaped flash next to him, signifying love and romance. However, this portrayal isn’t the traditional romantic James Bond style representation, it signifies a relaxed and confident man who doesn’t feel like he needs to express himself with a fancy suit or a muscular physique. This is effective as it gives more simple, subtle representations which make the magazine look more sophisticated. This is good as the overall look that I aimed to achieve with the magazine was sophisticated.Front Cover Main Image
  3. 3.  The women here are represented as strong, intelligent individuals who care more about their music than their sexuality. Both women are wearing simple costumes with more natural, minimal makeup, and their hair is modest, but they still look attractive. This represents the magazine as serious about music and therefore efficient in providing the latest information about music. The men are also represented as strong and intelligent individuals who want to show off their music rather than their physiques. In the close up black and white image Alex Major is represented as quite aggressive by his dominating pose, but the expression on his face is slightly comical and therefore softens the representation.

This further represents the higher class target audience.Language and Register
