Sure, we want others to know our truths; sometimes. Other times we want them to know a carefully crafted fantasy of us that may have little to do with our day to day reality. We may want them to see a vision of us as powerful, sexy, wealthy, or smart, when our personal view of ourselves may differ greatly.
The fascinating thing about each one of these images, is that most of us have learned to create an instantaneous set of suppositions about the people we see, that may in fact have nothing whatever to do with who they truly are.
Yes, its true that the man in the first picture is in fact Pope Benedict, but just as easily he could be someone in a costume, posing as such a man. The two models in the second image have been so deeply sexualized that we almost don't notice the clothes they are hawking, and their individual personhood is totally off the table. The two people is the third image are clearly actors, and as such have nothing whatever to do with the ridiculous display of overt wealth they carry on their backs. And lastly, though the man is wearing a mortar board and graduation gown, he could just as easily be the idiot son of some wealthy parents who slid him through an ivy league school with their money and influence.
The real point here is that each and every one of us do exactly this sort of misdirection and prevarication on a daily basis. We color our hair, go to the gym, get plastic surgery, and purchase clothes that describe us as more urbane, sexy and accomplished than we may actually be. We actively and routinely express, not our essential personal truth, but rather a fantasy we hold of ourselves, a higher, more perfected self.
