I really liked Sally Mann's photos, and found one to use as an example for "punctum." I found a photo with similar subjects also in black and white to use for a "studium" example.
Since Sally Mann frequently photographed her daughters in black and white, I thought this photo would be a good example of my interpretation of "studium." It's a cute photo of three little girls, and probably has more meaning to whoever took the photo or knows the girls. While it's sweet, it does not strike you like "punctum" should.
I had seen this Sally Mann photo many times before, but didn't know anything about her until we learned about her in class. This photo is so striking because it is a young girl holding a cigarette. Although it is a candy cigarette, the image of a child holding a cigarette is really striking and pushes some limits. The contrast between the white of her dress and hair with the rich black background is striking, and for me this photo represents "punctum."
