The force of images

There is a common expression in my country that tells : “One image is more strong tham 1.000 words”. I strongly believe that a good image can communicate in a very effective way a message, idea or value to large goups of people. Take loolink some prior examples to claritfy what I mean : Suadastic from Nazism, apple simbol from Apple, flags from countries around the world, maybe some pictures from different wars or examples from artist world: Monalisa from Leonard d’Vinci or Civil War from Picasso. All these examples can examplify very well the strong of a imagne.

Moreover, we should analyse a little better the examples that were listed in the introduction. Each one of them has a specific and clear intention to communicate some idea, as following: suadastic from nazism represent and summarize the all idea and philosofy about nazism, it is something that the people have to look and connect to nazism, it is a symbol of this terrible policy. In a similar way, the symbol from Apple remember all of us about the company and what it represent, the idea about revolution in the tecnology world, Flags represent the countries and nacionalities, the idea about nacionalism, that keep together people or comunity in a country. In a little different way, Monalisa or Civil War pictures show us other side of ideas, they represent feelings, a new perpective from the reality, everyone look a piece of art and something inside themselve change. The examples exposed here are persuasive and strong enough to defend the idea about the how effective is the images to transmit an idea or value.

However, images without language or philosophy below are nothing. How is the way that all of us communicate our ideas ? How is the effective tool that we are using along thousands of years to talk and discuss our ideas ? The answer is very simple: language ! The images only make sense because in some moment before we read something about the idea or philosophy. Indeed, the images are a way to explore or represent some thing that we have already listen, read or discussed before. Looking Baco the examples listed here to calrify this point of view: one could argue that without you listen something before Nazism the Suadastic make any sense for you or the simbol of Apple is only a funny picture of a fruit apple, we can apply this same idea to the art, the Civil War only make sense because you know about the atrocities that happened in the wars.

As a short conclusion, the images is only effetive way to communicate an idea or value when are connect with the most powerfull tool to express ideas: the language. I strongly believe that the examples discessed here are strong enough to draw and support this statement.
