Are each pair of people friends or enemies?.
So who are the friends and who are the enemies?
There's no telling. This is absolutely fascinating sociologically, I think.
Kottke: were you tipped off to this from the Dove-soap feature of women photographers? I've been sending the same page around to my friends (pity the images are so low-res though) ever since seeing it therein the other day. This would be a great study for researches to do (compare people's guesses to what the students have reported).
And does Michael have no friends or no enemies?
Perhaps Michael is his own worst enemy?
or his own best friend
i'm thinking they're all friends, cuz the way it's framed, like why would you take a picture with your enemy? besides it's all random anyway until you know their backstory.
Or he has an imaginary best friend.
I saw an article that mentioned that the person who Michael selected for the photo shoot declined to show up. I don't know if that gives away the answer to that one or not...
I was also fond of another series by this photographer where she took a random pair of women from church and captured the same mix of characters and relationships. They had some really nice hats.
