“Chair Men” Photograph

I have given this photograph a title that fits three men sitting in chairs and yet the body language suggests there is actually only one Chairman.

At least, that’s how it looks in this particular instant and I have no problem making such character judgements of people in these photographs as long as it is realised that it’s a judgement of the photographically frozen moment not the actual people in real life or even the situation that was photographed. The problems start when people assume photographs represent reality or truth when they are actually often very misleading.

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