Description of image
Lovers in a photo booth.
How does the image express or manipulate the truth?
The truth is that this was goodbye. The truth is that they had just met. The truth is that they were married. The truth is he keeps this strip in his nightstand. The truth is she lost it in a cab. The truth is that they are my parents. The truth is that they are us. The truth is that it doesn’t matter. Every photograph is a selective truth, even those made autonomously by a machine. So many possibilities exist in a fraction of a second, so many plausible scenarios.
