Humanistic reportage photography
Pokorná, Eliška ; Lábová, Alena (advisor) ; Géla, František (referee)
The bachelor thesis called Humanistic reportage photography is focused on the paradigm of humanistic reportage photography during the 1950's in Czechoslovakia and worldwide. The first part of the thesis explains the application of the paradigm to photojournalism in both of the above-mentioned areas. A special focus is given to the photographic exhibition Family of Man and the work of photographers united under the Magnum Photos agency. Furthermore, the thesis explores the sources of inspiration, the themes and the aesthetics of this photographic approach. This thesis also features the biographies of selected photographers as well as an explanation of the importance of picture magazines for this paradigm. In the analytical part, a quantitative content analysis method is used to evaluate the hypothesis, which states that the humanistic reportage photography paradigm, present in the photographic content in Life, was also to some extent present in Mladý svět. At the same time, the hypothesis also assumes that to an extent the usage of photographic content will differ in both weeklies, and the frequency of the topics and their aesthetic treatment will vary slightly. The results of the research and their analysis support the hypothesis and further develop it.

Photography in the Service of Journalism: A Social Semiotic Analysis of the Winning Pictures of Czech Press Photo (2006-2015)
Patáková, Veronika ; Řehořová, Irena (advisor) ; Fišerová, Michaela (referee)
This thesis deals with visual communication in the form of photography. Explaining the theories of Roland Barthes and Vilém Flusser we point out the tight relationship of this medium with reality that obscures its constructive character. The witness role of photography seems to be essential in the context of journalism, where we are offered a story by the pictures that is however mistaken for reality itself. The thesis tries to present practices of media discourse that make us perceive an event as newsworthy. It draws on the theory of news values and the methods of social semiotic analysis and applies these to the winning photos of the contest Czech Press Photo (2006-2015). We highlight the semiotic resources used in the meaning-making process in relation to each picture. The results show that the preferred constructed news values are negativity, aesthetic appeal, proximity and personalisation and that the winning photographs mostly strengthen their semblance of being strictly informative.

Photography as a part of complex communicate in the news of czech dailies
Jarošincová, Jitka ; Lábová, Alena (advisor) ; Šoltys, Otakar (referee)
My diploma thesis deals with respecting the journalism ethics by two most read general- interest newspapers in the Czech Republic - Mlada fronta DNES and Hospodarske noviny, when using complex communicate including a news photo. My research sample contained just breaking news (home and world) published nationwide in March, 2014. A relationship between meanings of particular parts in complex communicates (the headline, the caption, the photo and the article) and has been my variable that I was searching for within the sample. As all the parts work together in building one sense, which should represent a reality, I suppose, that meanings of these parts should show a relationship of harmony and substitution within one complex communicate. I used semiotic analysis to analyse meanings within a communicate, both denotation and connotation level. I applied my knowledge of social and visual semiotics, semantics and pragmatics to explain the meanings of individual signs. At the end of my research I compared results of my analysis to outcomes of Magda Polmanova's research - a former Charles University student that dealt with almost the same topic as me in her bachelor thesis, analysing the same dailies however from 2011. The findings of: How many times have these dailies published complex communicates that...

Visual Representation of Ukraine Crisis in Respekt Magazine
Trhoň, Ondřej ; Láb, Filip (advisor) ; Topinková, Martina (referee)
This work analyses how values of Respekt weekly magazine reflect in its photojournalistic coverage of beginning of Ukrainian crisis. Through simplified content analysis method I quantified different formal and content properties of ten galleries published during the Majdan protests and tried to interpret how they are used by photographers to influence their viewers and what is their role in medial framing of the conflict. Apart from creating a coding table and interpreting the results, I led interviews with two main Respekt photographers. Cumulative analysis of those resources revealed that Respekt's coverage is not impartial and in fact favorises protesters while almost not portraying the other side of conflict.
