A strange photo of Joe Biden with Jimmy Carter excited the network: what is wrong with him
This rather strange photo of the current head of the White House Joe Biden and his wife visiting 39th US President Jimmy Carter caused a storm on social networks. What is the reason for this unusual optical effect? Explains Air force.
In the picture, Carter and his wife Rosalyn look very small next to the real "giants" Biden and First Lady Jill. While Biden is indeed slightly taller than Carter, this height difference isn't nearly as great as it might seem from this photo.

According to BBC photo editor Phil Coombs, the fact is that the author of the picture used a wide-angle lens, which enlarges objects located at the outer edges of the scene, and, conversely, reduces the image in the center of the frame.
This distorting optical effect often becomes another tool for photographers to create interesting images. But in some cases, such as in this picture, it leads to rather unexpected consequences.
The photo with the Biden and Carters looks especially strange also because of the way the characters are positioned in the frame: the 39th president and his wife leaned on the backs of their chairs, while the current head of the White House and his wife, on the contrary, leaned forward.
The photo of the Biden and Carter drew a lot of ironic comments on social media.
This user, for example, decided to “change” the height of the figures in the photo.

And the author of this comment decided to joke about the powerful physical strength of Biden and his wife.
"We voted for Biden because he is a good and honest man with a sensible program, but also because he and Jill are giants who can crush anyone who makes them angry."
Jimmy Carter is 96 years old - he is the longest-lived US president in history, his wife is 93. Just like Biden, he was elected to the White House from the Democratic Party.
