The first problem we are faced with is the fact that the researcher’s view of the image is always loaded with prejudice and his or her own convictions, tastes and preferences. Thus, we accept this conditioning as inevitable, and attempt as far as possible, to correct this distortion of the analysis. In order to do this, our method proposes a first level, known as the contextual level, in which we gather the necessary information on the technique(s) employed, the author, when the image was created, the artistic movement or school to which the it belongs, together with a search for any other critical studies on the work in which the photograph we intend to analyse is included. The aim of undertaking this first level of analysis is to improve our reading competence.
