So was the photographer trying to tell a subtextual story here? I can see an imagined backstory of two college friends who dabbled in male/male sex, but then they fell in love with women and ended up in conventional marriages.
But then came that fateful weekend at their college reunion. Neither man's wife was able to attend with them. As they began to reminisce, their urges were re-awakened. And now they were men, no longer boys -- the lust was more robust and powerful. They parted once, but they could not part again.
