1000 Words Worth – Season 2
“A picture is worth a thousand words” is an English language-idiom. It refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does.
This saying was invented by an advertising executive, Fred R. Barnard. To promote his agency’s ads he took out an ad in Printer’s Ink in 1921 with the headline “One Look Is Worth a Thousand Words” and attributed it to an ancient Japanese philosopher.
In Season 1 – one image was displayed to the viewer, whilst in Season 2 – several images will be displayed to make up a picture of a topic – how you decide to interpret this topic or indeed these images is down to you and your creative imagination. Perhaps all of them speak to you, or maybe only a couple or when you see them together a single thought is sufficient to lead your story.
Your task is to create a story, a tale or a poem of any length, there is no set number count to it, of the photos – create something using your imagination and inventiveness – how do these images speak to you?
