Do you believe that this is merely coincidental
Here's why I think it's intentional. The black and
white photo of the man shows him in an empty field. Instead of
looking outwards (to the left) where all the open space is, as you
might expect, he's in one corner of the picture and looking towards
that corner, where nothing else is.
Nothing until you start to turn the page and the
liquor ad shows through. That makes a man who wasn't looking at
anything, now looking at an open whiskey bottle.
He is also a man by himself, as most alcoholic
(solitary drinkers) are.
(This example is from a newsmagazine.)
