He's Juxtaposer Him

It will be beneficial for you to understand as much magazine front cover glossary as possible. There are the clear and obvious ones such as mastheads, fonts and main images.

There are literally thousands of photos of these two floating about the interweb, many of which could conceivably show them as normal, loving parents to their two children during happy phases of their marriage, but the designers of Reveal have positioned these two undoubtedly grating images so as to create a different and altogether more sinister ambience. Get the pupils discussing the connotation of this juxtaposition.
