Abstract

This research deals with manifestations of the spirit of a place and visual narration thereof. The study evokes a discourse on the narrative possibilities of a still picture. The research is in the domain of visual communication design, and it focuses on pictures used as an essential communicative tool of a graphic designer. It sheds light on the creation of a picture and on its language as a producer of meanings. Simultaneously, the process of creating a picture is viewed as a visual narration.
