Abstract

This case study of two Iowa cities argues that news images hold cultural representations that can easily be defined within dominant society and the news institution itself. News narratives, the telling of a common story to help readers and journalists alike understand a current news event, have traditionally been identified within the words of news texts. This paper furthers the understanding of news narratives by looking through the lens of an event framed by news images.
