The photograph above represents something beautiful, something ideal. It is a representation of deep love between a man and a woman, one that symbolizes things that most humans believe about the human condition and themselves: generosity, tenderness, fidelity, caring, tolerance, love, the gentle nurturing of children, golden wedding anniversaries, grandchildren, etc.
Goya may have gone mad towards the end of his life or finally he may have been inspired to paint humans not as he saw them but as they really are. Surely, the photograph of the poor limbless boy in my last post is far more likely to have been the product of the gross, cruel, ugly people shown in Goya's dramatic painting than those posing for the top photograph.
Do you have a clear view of what humans really are? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.
