Black-and-white, hip-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is standing in a dark setting, in front of an image that is projected onto the wall behind him. The man is standing in the right side of the image and the projection is in the left side of the image. He is wearing eyeglasses with thick, dark frames, and his proper right arm is crossed in front of his chest. He is resting his chin on his left hand, which is covering his chin and mouth. The projection on the wall behind him is the face of a woman, turned toward the left side of the image. There is a white border around the image and an inscription on the border below the image.
