    I wouldn't reduce the work to its political content, but I wouldn't deny it either. The political content is part of its complexity.

    Perfectly comfortable with that — in fact it fits well with my theme of varying interpretations (what was it Sontag said about photography, that it "confounds intention"?)

    If in fact the artist was being benign (not making a political statement, but simply making an observation) and viewers draw the same conclusion as above or differing ones, but are moved to think or evaluate the subject on the artist’s terms or by the artist’s presentation of the subject, then the work is probably successful and probably meets a the artist’s goal.
    Yup, I think we are in agreement

    It's just a wee riff on intention, meaning, and how much of that evaluation comes from the viewer (and the viewing context). The Winogrand pic is one I grabbed at random as indicative of photos that gain a large part of their value from their ability to derail tidy interpretation.
