The first place that my eyes went was to the text of the screenshot, but I after viewing the accompanying text I began to look at Camila and the environment. If there were a way to take crop-out the words at the bottom of the screen, the viewer might focus on Camila's concern or the toxic looking environment; both of which I think do a better job of showcasing the toxic situation.
I think it would be interesting to add imagry that signifies the wage gap in the UC system: perhaps by including an image of the Chancellor's home (or even numerical representations of his salary).
I'm wondering what added analytic insight we'd get by putting this image in juxtaposition with another that somehow depicted the false death claims.
I would blow up the image of the police officer playing Connect 4 so that this is the only image on the left side. It has such affective force that I think it should be the main focus point of the image. As the image is now, it is hard to find a focus point.
The image is a powerful representation in the irony of LASPD’s rhetoric and LASPD’s involvement. However, it has a lot of information. I would suggest narrowing the statistical representation on the right side of the image so that you only feature the “LASPD POPULATION VS LASPD INVOLVEMENT Bar Graph"
these images, and I think "scientific" images more broadly, are much more dependent on discoure or narrative to draw out ethnographic meanings. what's most ethnographic about them is they way they condense a set of practices and relations: who makes them, how they are made, how they learn to make them, how people learn to read them, how they are used, etc. The genealogies of these practices in particular places.
