There is a huge influence of the mass media in today’s society. Everyday, we are exposed to familiarize ourselves with thousand of images which come from tv, newspapers, internet, so on. The need to be informed pushes us to inmerse ourselves in the media wave thinking that it is an objective source of information which give us an absolute truth. However, “the truth” managed by the media is an ambiguous and subjective “truth” which consumes and confuses us daily.
This work aims to show the transformation of a Colombian newspaper’s image as a metaphor of the transformation that current events experience everyday through mass media. As well, it creates a wordplay with critical connotations.
