The educational institutions – the university schools in this case – have been described as reproducers of the social order and professional values and practices, according to Giroux and Simon concept of educational context. In this visual essay we propose an enquiry on the relationships between the students’ professional identities and the educational contexts through a visual discourse. The aesthetic relations in the visual essay, due to both the photographic searching process and the layout design, are fundamental to establish interpretative and metaphorical comparisons that enrich the verbal descriptions and interpretations commonly used.

Las instituciones educativas –en este caso las facultades universitarias– ha sido descritras como agentes reproductores del orden social y de los valores y prácticas profesionales, de acuerdo al concepto de contexto educativo de Giroux y Simon. En este ensayo visual proponemos indagar la relación entre la identidad profesional de los estudiantes y sus contextos educativos por medio de un discurso visual. Las relaciones estéticas en el ensayo visual, debidas tanto al proceso de búsqueda fotográfica como al diseño de maquetación, son fundamentales para establecer comparaciones interpretativas y metafóricas que enriquecen las descripciones e interpretaciones verbales que se emplean habitualmente.
