That's incredibly peculiar, I find it hard to come up with a good explination for whatever their doing or the ';panel' of people behind them, but i feel if it was today, it would be on t.v and it would be based around simon cowell :paranoid:

I enjoy looking at old photographs like these and wondering about what happend there and to the people in them.

Can i ask where you found this set? :)

I think that the scene is easy to interpret. This is obviously some sort of dance school and the children are being judge on their ability. It all seems quite brutal to me. I have a few other images from this collection where the teachers seem to be working really hard to bend the kids into the right shape. In the USSR this sort of thing was very common as they liked to produce the best dancers, the best athletes, the best everything really.

But I think you right, If this was a modern day image then the title would probably have 'Celebrity' somewhere in it and Simon Cowells ugly face would be all over it.

These images were sent to me by a friend who has a good eye for found photographs.

Thanks for commenting Ian. :D

There's a blog i read you might be interested in by someone who collects old photographs from American car boot sales and other collectors. Worth a look, especially the "square America" series :)
