With 150 photographs of famous people and ordinary folks, this engaging book uncovers the stories behind the pictures.There is more going on in most photographs than we usually see―hidden desires and fears, unspoken loves and hates, people's valiant efforts to camouflage themselves in the public world, and the inevitable leakage of their hopes and dreams and difficulties. Most of us do not see these aspects because, as Robert Akeret says, we do not know the vocabulary of photolanguage.

Robert U. Akeret received his doctorate in psychology from Columbia University and his certificate in psychoanalysis from the William Alanson White Institute where he trained with Rollo May and Erich Fromm. He has worked in the counseling services at Columbia University, the City College of New York, and is a past President of the Association of Psychoanalytic Psychologists.From Library Journal:
In 1973, private psychoanalyst Akeret (Photoanalysis: How To Interpret the Hidden Psychological Meaning of Personal and Public Photographs) devised a method of using the family photographs of patients in his New York City practice to help them understand aspects of their past. He returns to this subject here in what could be considered a companion volume. The discussion format centered on individual examples is similar, but chapters now focus on such themes as passion and narcissism. The photographs are different, with the exception of one of the captured Pueblo crewmen whose hand gestures the author reinterprets. While Akeret uses his professional training, intuition, and information he might already have known about the individuals pictured, he believes that his methods of "reading" photographs through people's body language, gestures, and expressions can be developed by others. In the Library of Congress classification, both books have been assigned to the "BF" (Psychology) section, and this book is recommended for that area of public libraries.
