Strangely, Maris, this presents to me a may decades later sequel to Gene Smith's "Walk To Paradse Garden", all grown up. It is the bond between the two figures who seem extremely content with having become one figure. I see a shared trust and commitment very much to the fore here rather than any suggestion of nefarious misadventure.

These people are a long married couple with a ample stock of cheer and humour. Possibly too much humour for the photographer who insists they try to stay perfectly still for a one second exposure instead of just laughing like drains.
