Analysing the Mystery Boy.

Having just made a post about black and white cameras, I thought I’d offer a typical picture of the sort that was made in such devices. Colour film had definitely been invented by then, but the cameras were expensive.

You might care to note that one young man is the only member of the group whose hairline is not parallel with his eyebrows. This would indicate that he is out of step with received notions of conventional grooming, and maybe with convention per se. To his credit, however, he’s the only male with a complete sense of balance, having a pretty girl in one hand and a glass in the other. But it has to be said that his choice of sweater is dubious, so maybe style wasn’t his strong suit. Could any of these attributes be the reason for the intense stare being directed towards him by the girl at top right of the picture? I wonder who he was.
