Abstract:

This article aims to investigate the informative purpose of photographic captions and the relationship of visual and written languages in Brazilian daily newspapers. The front pages of 36 newspapers from every region of Brazil on April 8 2011, regarding the Realengo massacre were analyzed. With theoretical support from Roland Barthes, Martine Joly, Milton Guran, Jorge Santos and Ivan Lima the captions from two images that were repeated in nearly half the material analyzed, were selected. In the majority of cases the photographic captions do not fulfill their informative purpose, instead providing descriptions and opinions.
