Cliché
"A phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought / A very predictable or unoriginal thing or person / British Printing
A stereotype or electrotype / Mid 19th century: French, past participle (used as a noun) of clicher to stereotype." (Oxford English Dictionary)
"Phototype négatif servant au tirage des épreuves / Vieux. Toute photographie : Montrer ses clichés de vacances / Lieu commun, banalité qu'on redit souvent et dans les mêmes termes / Planche métallique en relief établie par moulage en vue de l'impression typographique / En photogravure, film photographique ou gravure en relief destinée directement à l'impression" (Dictionnaire Larousse)
Photography doesn't have much to share with the truth. Each photograph corresponds to a short moment,  an instant where the eye catches someone in a situation and imagines their story, based on one own's experiences, feelings, beliefs. Don't we all do this whenever we look at someone? Don't we all try and tell their stories? Don't we all fall into clichés too?
I had fun playing around with clichés, imagining the stories of people met just for a very short moment, the time of a quick "cliché".
