The Photographic Tableaux

The Tableaux began in the early 1800s and depicts a story or narrative, often historical, shown within an image: paintings, photographs or other mediums. This is very important in photography as it helps to shape how the audience views the work produced, there can be signifiers that indicate certain things; such as who the person is, what they are doing and what has lead them to this situation.
