No. I like to analyse. Photos released for public consumption will always convey a message. Iconography and propaganda of sorts. From Cecil Beaton's portraits of Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) all in soothing white soon after the Abdication crisis, to Beaton's Coronation portrait of Elizabeth II in her crowned and bejewelled magnificance, to Harry lounging over a motor bike, there is something being said.
