What story goes with this picture?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I wonder if you guys could help me in a survey? No job required on your parts, just a reply to this topic on what newspaper story this image could have been used in context with.

 

I am doing a sort of experiement on behalf of a friend of mine who needs to hand in a paper on news stories and images put together with the story. It would be greatly appreciated if you could weigh in your thoughts! :)

 

This is the image:

Okay I'll admit I cheated :P but I don't know how much of a story you could draw from a single picture. Maybe people who watch a lot more news than me would get more of a feel for it. If I had to guess based on experience with what's on TV these days, I would assume something grizzly happened

A single selfie doesn't really say much...

 

I'll say she's a muslim, who used to be like a normal woman her age (this is a photo from that time) but for some reason she started to radicalize, wearing a hijab and later a burqa and eventually emigrated to syria to join the IS. Probably dead wrong, but she somehow reminded me of a simlar story I've heard recently. And I don't really have any clue otherwise :P

I appreciate your weighing in! it doesn't really matter what is wrong answer or not, because what my friend need is your best guess-work based on the image its self. For instance: Would you think the image has been used in context with "small town flooded and more than 30 familys died", or: "The prices of gas will raise within the next five years" or "Girl found a new receipe for cupcakes". None of those is true though! Just giving examples :P

 

And I loved your interpretation of the image! Could so have been the real story behind that picture.

Nope, but keep trying :P

 

Just want to clarify: there is nothing wrong with the woman it self. Her image was used in a context that doesn't fit the story so to say. The woman her self is quite a normal, sweet girl =)

Some article/op-ed about selfies? "The Sickness of Selfie Culture"?

It's a flawed experiment in that the OP is saying "What do you think the news story is associated to this picture?". I don't know about you, but I am willing to bet that everyone has vastly different "go to news sources" so unless you actually happen to fall into the category where this news story comes from then we won't have a chance in hell of actually guessing it unless we get some context that would put everyone on the same level.

 

Even knowing the the tabloid/vehicle for which the article was publish on would change how we would perceive the picture. Long story short - our biases and internet/news resourcing habits should dictate how we perceive the pictures (apparent) relevance to journalism.

 

Bad experiment design rating 1.5/10

Looks like a "written by" author picture from a buzzfeed spinoff. Not even really related to the news.

 

I disagree Boris, the experiment design may not be perfect but it delivers insight, to at least the participants here as to what type of media they're commonly exposed to, which is a good thing to be aware of.

And you are right sir! The story this picture was associated with was a story about her son being nearly taken by a pedophile driving through their hometown. Luckily the four year old son got away and she wanted to warn other parents in the area about this potentional danger. The local newsman however, or woman, decided to just go to her facebook profile and randomly pick a photo of her and put that, exactly that huge image too, next to the quite seriousnes in the story. Several readers reacted to that and has complained about it to the local newspaper... Some said they first (before reading the story or the headlines) thought the story was about; a blogger, a story about young and vain people again or "a paradise hotel participant story again" - absolutely not about pedophiles and babys! That is why my friend, who is going to college to be a journalist, wanted to test the image on to non-norwegians who wasn't influenced because they knew what it was about.

 

They say a picture can say more than a thousand words. And shouldn't at least journalists know this? This particualr journalist didn't, or did not care. Sloppy work I'd say.

 

It was very interesting to hear your opinions though and my friend says she is more than gratefull! :)
