Video • The Lab: Decoy

A fascinating video, which I encountered originally as Facebook clickbait, then located on the Canon Australia channel of YouTube.

Six photographers each given 10 minutes to photograph the same man, but each given a different background story: self-made millionaire, life-saver, ex-inmate, commercial fisherman, psychic, recovering alcoholic. Six different approaches to the session and six different images resulting.

Final tag: A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what is in front of it
