Abstract

The perception of reality, now, is mediated by multimedia supports. We observe the world with thousands of eyes that aren’t ours. The images that we absorb, often, give us a mere reproduction of the reality and don’t offer an interpretation of it. Is our capacity to comprehend reality reduced because we are used to seeing too many images made by occasional photographers without an analytic filter? This study aims to analyze, through a scientific method, the larger part of images related to one specific place. The analysis will be conducted using a statistic method, analyzing many images and trying to elaborate a graphic strategy that allowing the peculiarity of every analyzed category to emerge. The categories are made up of printed images, internet images and images present in the social forums.
