A photocollage featuring a nude man. He is stretched out vertically in the image, facing the viewer. His arms are crossed above his head, and his forehead is resting on a forearm. He is wearing a white shirt that is open all the way, with the sleeves rolled up. There are impressions of his skin as if he is being photographed while pressed against glass. Behind him is a hortizontal rectangle, with a squid on the left side. There is a green wash over the rectangle.
