This photo is just pure fun, but it can be used for serious purposes. Let’s see how.
Self consciousness. The ability to laugh at yourself. The power of fun. Silliness. There is a lot to explore in these capacities. Is it a universal human condition that we fear looking foolish or laughable? Industries make billions on people who worry that they look too old or too fat. We are coaxed to spend billions conforming to standards of beauty that we believe we need to meet. Here is a photograph that counters those ideas. This young man has the self confidence to look goofy and to invite others to laugh at him. With his wild hair, his scruffy beard and those wacked glasses, he has achieved a look of towering nuttiness. It may be that he was in a safe and supportive situation that encourages him to be himself. Or a situation that needed to be lightened up. Whatever was going on, he had the courage and self confidence to go for it. A photo like this one gives a presenter so many options to explore ideas of beauty, fun, courage, humor and attitude.
