Visual Literacy ‘Reading Images’

The lecture on reading images was quite interesting, it made me realize how to read an image fully without there being any text or quotes. This helped me when doing research for other modules, recognising what an image means instead of just reading the text. Images are used in everyday jobs, for example driving signs. everything seems to come down to images so it was interesting to find out more about how to read them.

”Most art museum and art history sites are loaded with images and their captions. And just as every picture tells a story, so does its caption. In fact, you can learn almost everything about a work simply by reading its caption line by line.”
