What’s wrong with this photo?

I saw this photo in Paris today as I was headed to the Centre Pompidou. It is a recruitment campaign for, get this, prison guards. Pretty surreal, right? The slogan across the top says, “What society could get by without us?”. Interesting. Also, the composition of the photo worth noting. Note that the white guy towers over the female and other younger guy and there is a sort of Arabic-looking guy really tiny in the back. Curious, the French view of diversity. I suppose that it is a good effort for such a thankless job though.  I just wonder if advertising for prison guards on the corner of a building in downtown Paris is going to bring in loads of candidates. You could argue that this being so close to Châtelet and the riffraff of rue Saint-Denis that it may be the best spot for this sort of thing, but do folks looking for work as prison guards answer ads like this? Perhaps it is the cute blue uniforms that brings ’em in. Just thought I’d share this with you dear reader.
