Th(re)e eyes are the window of the soul

12/10/2012

After sitting through a routine photo session at her school, Tilde Nörgaard (from Lidköping in Sweden, about 75 miles north-east of Gothenburg) was slightly surprised to receive a class yearbook picture that showed her with a third eye in her forehead.

Unsurprisingly, photography company Skolfoto Norden (celebrating its 20th anniversary of specialist school photography this year) received a bucket-load of embarrassing press for this magnificent error, but has completely deadpanned it. “When we went back and looked at the original picture no one had their eyes closed. There wasn’t anything that might need correcting,” head of photography David Nabb told the Swedish news website, The Local.

Nabb explained that when students in school pictures have their eyes closed, the company “in emergency situations” sometimes retouches the images by digitally cutting and pasting an eye from another student in the picture.

The company has offered Tilde Kr. 1,500 ($225) for the cock-up, and is planning to send out corrected versions of the yearbook.
