A study in contrasts
This is an example of a photo that has been curated for us by someone else. We have no context to offer for this photograph other than to say it was discovered on the floor of a dive bar, which isn’t particularly enlightening. The contrast between the guy’s agony, which seems to get worse with each subsequent picture, and the cheerful frames added by the photo booth has something.
The answer is, we don’t know. Perhaps he’s just pretending to be going through a nervous breakdown, or perhaps he’s genuinely having one. It can be beautiful and hilarious while yet sad; doesn’t that sum up existence?
