We all know the old saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
The adage was first said by Henrik Ibsen, and was a little different than what we know now: “a thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed.” Over the years, through translations and appropriations, the exact wording has changed, but the sentiment remains the same: complex or nuanced feelings and thoughts can sometimes best be summed up in a single image.
See how these selected artists use their craft to express what is too complex for words alone.
