The act of seeing which establishes our place in the surrounding world, we can describe the world using words, but words can never describe the emotional experience in total. What does visual really mean? How is visual measured? As an observer, how can we define whether the message and the meaning of a particular visual is delivered and understood along with the information it carries? Those three questions play important roles especially with the rapid growth of technology, which contributes to the development of human knowledge especially in the art industries. This paper explores the problems in understanding of photography imageries and their impact to the society.
