Images That Make You: Laugh

Posted by Workbook on 02/22/2012 — Filed under:  FeaturesGalleriesHeadlineImages That Make You...Photography
By Suzanne Semnacher

Whether an image belongs in an artist's portfolio, in an ad, or on a website often depends on the response the image evokes; is it compelling in some way? One of the best indicators of whether an image engages the viewer is humor. Does it make the viewer laugh? If it does, usually the reason is the image conveys some quirky aspect of the human condition, and the evidence a photographer has connected with his or her subject is right there in the photo.

I put together a gallery of some, but by no means all, of my favorites pulled from Workbook portfolios, but there are many more wonderful and funny images by some really terrific photographers on the Workbook website.
