I just got a strange and slightly disturbing email, from somebody I barely know, accompanied by a photograph of a severed head. The email said:
no doubt you have seen this or not
I have been following a poster on the subway all month thinking, that face is familiar….
At first, I was at a loss to work out what coincidence he was referring to. The head in the photo looked a little like me, although not so much that I would have jumped up and said “it’s my long lost twin”. Then it hit me: the head in the photo looked a little like me. More specifically, like a particular photo of me, the one I have been using on the home-page of my photography website, and also as an avatar on Flickr and other various forums I’m signed up to.
