In each of the photographs in Figures 1–6, we know what is going to happen to the people we see. We know something important about their lives that, at the moment the photograph was taken, they did not know. We could rewrite the captions under the photographs in this way:

Fig. 1 – They are going to marry and have five children
Fig. 2 – They are going to be victims of violence
Fig. 3 – He is going to be shot
Fig. 4 – In a few minutes he is going to commit suicide
Fig. 5 – Soon, he is going to become president
Fig. 6 – They are going to have a son, who is going to become a pope
