“Reader” Photograph

It’s revealing to me how the fortune teller here does not seem to be reading the cards on the table but the woman herself. Of course, it could just be that as I took the photograph he happened to glance up at her for a brief moment but I suspect that the real trick is to keep her focussed on the interesting-looking cards so that he can carefully study her demeanor and reactions to guide the telling of her fortune.

I don’t think he’s a policeman even though the pouch on his belt claims so.
