This is the very very simple "Mona Lisa/weather map" problem, i.e.
"what is denoted?". If you have a resource that is a photo of Dan, to
say things about Dan himself, you just use a simple RDF statement
(that's what RDF is there for!):-

   [ :depictedIn <http://example.org/dan-photo>;
      :name "Dan" ] .

Simple stuff; RDF gives you that power.
