— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

THE BIG CAPTION.

Everyone should take a look at The Big Picture. Over the lat few years it has gained a large cult following each week with it’s stunning thematically selected images that are well, big. What the Big Picture reminds us is the power of photojournalism in provoking our senses or willing us to see a subject in a new light.

However, as with anything on the web, it is rather lampoonable, which is where The Big Caption comes in. This Tumblr blog takes the best and the worst of the Big Picture content, slaps some cool (and not so cool) typefaces on it, and wreaks havoc. It’s fun, irreverent, and actually the best ones provoke even stronger reactions to the images, (as above) others are just laugh out loud funny. You decide which is which. More after the jump.
