Ebook Description:

There is more going on in most photographs than we usually see—hidden desires and fears, unspoken loves and hates, people's valiant efforts to camouflage themselves in the public world, and the inevitable leakage of their hopes and dreams and difficulties. Most of us do not see these aspects because, as Robert Akeret says, we do not know the vocabulary of photolanguage.

Her There is more going on in most photographs than we usually see—hidden desires and fears, unspoken loves and hates, people's valiant efforts to camouflage themselves in the public world, and the inevitable leakage of their hopes and dreams and difficulties. Most of us do not see these aspects because, as Robert Akeret says, we do not know the vocabulary of photolanguage.

Here, using 150 photographs spanning 100 years, Akeret explores such themes as power, seduction, immortality, passion, and narcissism. Readers will find Frank Sinatra uncharacteristically off balance, O. J. Simpson smirking his way to freedom, Jodie Foster adored by her mother, Bill Clinton unconvincingly wagging a finger, and Bill Gates as the Wizard of Oz. The author shares his personal interpretations, teaching by example and inviting readers to join the fun. 148 black-and-white photographs.
