“Two Heads” Photograph

I was going to name this photograph “Generation Gap” but that would have been a very leading title so changed it to the more neutral “Two Heads”. The problem with a title that “interprets” is that the viewer may well notice it before they look at the picture which then strongly influences their own viewing.

Sometimes there is only one real of reading a photograph so an interpretive rather than simply descriptive title doesn’t matter but here the picture has no absolute concrete meaning so it’s better to let viewer see it in their own way. At least here in the text people will see my suggested interpretation after they have looked at the picture themselves.

Photograph taken at “Saturday Walking Street”, Chiang Mai, Thailand
