Looking and thinking critically about a visual text cannot be truly perceived properly without looking at the context behind the image itself. It reminds me of the quote –

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view . . . until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

To Kill A Mockingbird. Harper Lee 1960

This relates in the terms that you can never really understand a visual text fully until you look at the context of it,  because without doing so you lack the ability to understand what the artist is trying to completely convey.
