It is a bit difficult to ignore the title the photographer has come up with for this edition.
It is so full of information that even after just glancing over it, it becomes rather hard to have a mind of my own about this picture. I have tried to come up with different alternatives such as teacher-pupil, photographer-model, photographer-assistant, freelancer-customer, architect-photographer, janitor-photographer, but none of these seemed to fit.

However, the reason for that, to my great content, is not the title but the image. Though it reveals nothing about fatherhood, it does suggest that the older man is close to the younger. And I think this has to do with the way the older man positions himself. The way he sits there is intimately at ease and by extend the younger man is also completely calm and comfortable. They seem to talk without feeling any need to be looking at each other, which to me is another sign of intimacy greater than might be expected from strangers or co-workers.

The whole thing reminds me of a book cover and given the fact that the title is so important this edition, I hope the photographer will forgive me for returning the favor with an image of my own. Look at this book cover and the title that’s printed on it.

Now look once more at the photo of the week.
See what I mean?
Intimacy.

(great book by the way, for those of you who like interdisciplinary science on impossible subjects)
