"The pictures that Goffman has chosen and arranged for our perusal are a commentary on the complicated matter of 'what we ourselves might be engaged in doing.' That commentary clearly demonstrates that while advertisements appear to be photographing male and female human beings, what they are actually photographing is a depiction of masculinity and femininity that is fitted or matched in such a way as to make it function socially. "What is original with Goffman is the quality of the insight he brings to bear on male- female images in advertising. Most observation on this subject has been of a blunt and fundamental nature: original spadework, so to speak; digging up the issue. What Goffman does here - by virtue of his penetrating eye and his comprehensive context - is to contribute an observation so shrewd and subtle it takes us further than we have been before.
