John Suler's Photographic Psychology: Image and Psyche

Create Your Own Title for this Image

create a title for this image


In my exhibition Photographic Psychology: Forces that Shape the Psyche at the Rider University Art Gallery, each photo represented a different force that influences our lives and sense of self. A title and caption accompanied each image.

Except for the image above. Hanging next to it, a cartoon sign encouraged attenders to create their own title. They jotted down their choice on a paper and tacked it up next to the photo.

If it's true the we tend to project our lives and identity into how we interpret images, could their titles say something about them? Below are the titles they suggested... What would be your title?
