RaajS, you might find a couple of books on photography and related art theory of interest re interpreting photographs.

Roland Barthes 'Camera Lucida' various books by Victor Burgin, 'Ways of Seeing' by John Berger, and Susan Sontag's 'On Photography' would all be a good place to start, all quite old texts now but still often referred to.

You have to look at the details of the photograph, implied significance, context, symbolism, metaphor and so on. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiotics_of_photography there may (or may not) be meanings beyond the immediate subject matter.

Apologies if you are already aware of the above.

Thanks, John.  Appreciate your pointers.  No apology called for!
