Certainly there is a reference to the time that passes with death, but it allows to be both neutral and transfigure what the individual leaves as a trace of his actions / his attitude.
This notion of death is counterbalanced by the use of a childish game namely a disguise called photo-booth. I have voluntarily chosen to use the notion of smile that is both specific to each but does not require translation.
