What are companion images, and what can they tell us? Explain your response via Walker Evans' Vicksburg photo (1936), or Russell Lee's Christmas Dinner in Iowa (1936).
Consider the clip below from Nightcrawler (2014) in which Jake Gyllenhaal's character, an L.A. crime paparazzo/journalist, stumbles upon a car wreck. How does this fictional scene compare to the work of some documentary photographers like Alexander Gardner and Jacob Riis? Is this a fair comparison? Why or why not?
