1338 words - 6 pages

A journey is the distance travelled in a specified time from one place to another, whether this place is physical, inner or imagined. Imaginative journeys occur in a fantasy world, where the reader or character goes on the journey, and in the case of the character having an imaginative journey, the reader also learns from this experience. Through different mediums and techniques, "The Ivory Trail" and "Journey into the Interior" are able to communicate imaginative journeys each in its own fashion.The title of the book, 'The Ivory Trail' itself implies a journey. The word 'trail' connotes a winding, uncertain path through the wild and unknown. One of the most obvious journeys represented in ...view middle of the document...

The lighting and the dominant colours of the photograph also aids in depicting this imaginative journey. The excessive use of the colour red signifies with the desert, the heat and the Sun, while the predominant colour of black denotes a mood of mystery and intrigue surrounding the places shown in the photograph, establishing a sense of spirituality and mysticism which the boy is experiencing, further revealing his imaginative journey towards the unknown. The use of lighting, seen in the special light that bathes the figure of the sphinx and which also shines on the young boy, and the sun as seen in the background, denotes a connection between the boy, the sphinx and the sun, as if symbolic of illuminating a light of 'path' directed towards him, establishing the effect of creating a journey whether it be physical or imaginary, in which the boy 'channels' through times and continents.
