    I don't see any intention to deceive; rather, to portray.

    IOW, I think you nailed it in your first paragraph.

    •  no--I don't see intention to deceive either. (0+ / 0-)

      But it does take a representative of one set of circumstances and imbue it with another set of circumstances, which is pushing some of the boundaries of journalistic (not artistic) integrity.

      But as I"ve said elsewhere--I do like the portrayal.  But I think an explanation of the photo and the original model somewhere would be helpful.
