The advertisement that I chose to analyze captures a Louis Vuitton trunk-maker in the process of hammering rivets to attach the lock to a trunk. The lines on the brow and jaw of the trunk-maker show the concentration of the craftsman The look of the craftsman indicates the care and attention to detail that goes into his work This advertisement attempts to instill in the consumer ideas of quality through the image of the lone craftsman and his work. The advertisement does not show the inside of a factory or other workers and in this way harkens back to the specialized artisans of previous generations. Ideas of quality are also evoked through certain details of the image. The greying hair of the craftsman indicates years - years of perfecting his knowledge and skills. This particular trunk-maker is not an apprentice but a master-craftsman. Perhaps his trade has been passed down through his family. Perhaps he is the first in his family to learn the craft but he apprenticed under a well-known master-craftsman. In contrast to his hair, the hands of the craftsman do not show aging. Also, the craftsman's hands are not marred by years of hard labor. The appearance of the craftsman retaining young hands, without signs of years of rugged work, evokes thoughts of vitality and precision. The hands emphasize the care and detail that goes into the work the trunk-maker performs. Precision can also be seen in the careful way that the craftsman holds the rivet and hammer. The craftsman is shown wearing a monogram of the manufacturer. This detail creates a sense of pride on the part of the craftsman - that…

Recently, sociologists have taken a greater interest in Native Americans, perhaps because Native Americans have become increasingly visible in the diverse ethnic mosaic of American society. The position of Native Americans in the U.S. socioeconomic hierarchy: their numbers, where they live, and their social and economic well-being. The collapse and revitalization of the Native American population has been a central issue within Native American demography. The recent growth in the population has been accompanied…

American vs. Hispanic
Language, a form of expression that is used daily to convey our feelings, thoughts, and
emotions to others. It’s something that plays a very huge part in all our lives, yet its hard to
imagine that “language” can change us, transform us, and even evolve us. Language is so
powerful that it has many layers that need to be pilled back to find out how they work and what
they mean. That transformative power of language can help someone become or change the way
