addendum, Rob Cardinal

Strolling through Rob's Deviant Art site, I find he's posted his portrait shot for the class assignment.

What fascinates me about this image is the emotional impact it has on most people. In crit, we found ourselves composing stories about them, only to discover that Rob had just asked them and snapped their picture, and that he didn't even know them!
Shows just how much art really does come from interpretation, even when you're dealing with human beings as subjects and something as supposedly rooted in "reality" as photography.
But we know better.
Don't We?
