[...] A three-quarter pose, more common, suggests the tyranny of an ideal: the gaze dissolves nobly into the future, not confrontational yet dominating and fecundating a modestly indefinite elsewhere. Almost all the three-quarter shots are ascensional, the countenance raised toward a supernatural light which lures it upward, elevating it to regions of a superior humanity, where the candidate attains the Olympus of lofty sentiments, where all political contradiction is resolved: Algerian war and peace, social progress and executive benefits, "free" education and subsidies to the sugar beet farmers, the Right and the Left (an opposition always "transcended!"), all this coexists peacefully in that pensive gaze, nobly fixed on the Occult interests of Order.
