‘Image refers to two different things. There is a simple relationship that produces the likeness of the original: not necessarily a faithful copy, but simply what suffices to stand for it. And then there is something that we call as art: an alteration of resemblance. This alteration can take a myriad forms. It might be the visibility given to brush-strokes that are superfluous when it comes to revealing who is represented by the portrait; an elongation of bodies that express their motion at the expense of their proportions; and so on and so forth.’ (quoted from the book, The Future Of The Image)
Thus, there are images created with a clear purpose and images that are exploratory in nature. But both are interested in the same function: TO COMMUNICATE.
Images describe what the eye might see or might never see. They clarify or suggest an idea. The image is a vehicle of silent discourse. Images have the power to evoke emotions.
