Description

Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, who is facing the viewer. He is standing in a dark, indoor setting. There is an image of a woman's face projected onto the wall behind the man, who is standing in the right side of the image. There is a bright source of light hitting side of the man's face and shoulder from the right side of the image. He is wearing eyeglasses with thick, black frames, and his arms are crossed in front of his chest. He is wearing a long-sleeved shirt and the sleeves are rolled up to his elbows.
