Story behind the photograph
An interestingly dressed and man and a woman with an elaborate makeup were approaching people in the Pitt Street Mall. Most people did not know how to react as it was not clear from their attire who or what are they representing. Was it a costume party or just a couple of mad people?
Well, believe it or not, once you overcame the fascination with their look the message they were carrying was simple “pedestrian safety”.
So, the man with the Picasso face was simply saying “look out, cars about”. And the crowd was looking out … for him not the cars. Kudos for originality and look but total failure as specific message delivery method.
