Six Photographers Took The Same Man’s Picture, What They Captured Will Make You Think

When you hold preconceived thought and beliefs this can manifest itself in sometimes ugly ways and at the very least can skew your judgement. I think at some stage in our lives we have all been guilty of holding unjust prejudices against people for no particular reason other than something we have been told about them.

Six Photographers Took The Same Man’s Picture, What They Captured Will Make You Think

When you hold preconceived thought and beliefs this can manifest itself in sometimes ugly ways and at the very least can skew your judgement. I think at some stage in our lives we have all been guilty of holding unjust prejudices against people for no particular reason other than something we have been told about them.

That’s exactly what this experiment is all about. Six photographers were told to photograph the same man but each of them was told a different background story about who the man was. For example, one of them was told he was a self-made millionaire whilst another was told he was an ex-convict.

In reality, he is none of those things. The results of how the man was portrayed in their photographs was mind blowing and very revealing to say the least. Take a look for yourself.


I think this experiment highlights just how much our pre-conceived notions go into what we create. A photograph can be such an intimate representation of who we are. It also says a lot about the photographer too.

I hope this experiment acts as a reminder to you that you need to be careful about what you listen to and digest when people talk about someone else. Because what they say will shape how you think of them. And those thoughts can sometimes be untrue, so before you judge someone give them the chance to tell you their own story because often it will be different to the one you have heard.

Please share this eye-opening experiment with your friends and family.

  2. It may sound corny, but I believe that a person is like one of those Saturday Night Fever multi-mirrored disco balls. People see you and form their perceptions from the facets they can view.

    Thought provoking video. Thanks
