Finding the Narrative

753-160

Creating an ambiguous narrative can give longevity to a photograph, where the subtle interpretations can vary in correspondence with changes in mood and feelings of the viewer over a period of time. The two models above requested a photo session that would illustrate the sexual explorations in their relationship. As this somewhat typical scene of a prelude to a seductive kiss started to unfold, I simply gave the quiet instruction for the dark haired model to look off to the side. The resulting photograph immensely expands the interpretation of this image and in turn the perceived narrative. What has distracted her? Is there a sinister ulterior motive about to play out? Is the blonde model asleep? or dead? … onward your mind starts to play with the possible image narratives. The lesson learned; always be aware of how a simple and slight adjustment in a composition can add great depth to the presents of an image's narrative.
