Something struck me about this photo – mainly because of the ominous shadow cast on the wall. Take whatever meaning you would like from the ominous shadow.

What story does this photo tell you? One that comes to mind could be that this photo saying “you can’t cover up your true self – it’s always there, even if it’s in the shadows” (of course this meaning is not specific to the people in the photo, but of the photo as art). Does anyone see something different in the shadow than what is happening in real life? thoughts?

Your turn – as an art critic – what, if any, meaning does this photo have to you?
