I guess I don't really understand the question. Yes, I'd assume it was staged, that she'd be standing like that showing the newspaper as she is. But what difference does it make whether we think it was staged or not? Seems to me there are other questions that would tell you more how your "photo is being viewed," e.g., how did you react emotionally, what do you perceive the intent of the artist to be, do you think this image has artistic merit, etc. Of course, those are not yes/no questions -- but often the best questions and answers require narrative.
