Jos Letschert, Professional painter
Jos Letschert Roberto, this is a very interesting image and a rather enigmatic one too, I presume. The head is repeated in what could be a mirror, nevertheless it could also be a nimbus or a halo. You can never be sure about aureole and their glorious appearances. Eyes are often considered as the mirrors of the soul. In this case there is concurrence by the glasses, reflecting whatever it could be. The man is going out, or is posed there in a frame. He could be an important element in the still-life of the scenery. Anyway, a kind of presentation, or representation of contemplation, or maybe just a coincidence captured by a photographer passing by.

M W Roberto. I guess Jos used a very suitable word. "Enigmatic". And yes, this time it's too enigmatic for me. And what I admire much in your works, that each of your work holds me for a longer while for a little brain storm :)

Roberto De Mitri, Citizen of the World
Roberto De Mitri Jos... :) … :) … in fact, the rather interesting part of this photo is in its atmosphere, a bit dreamy and surreal. effect created by an “overlap” of elements. We have here a dark figure, whose shadowy face is reflected in the mirror and behind him we have a picture, an ancient print, which crowns his head. this creates a slightly strange effect. so, from my point of view, more than an enigmatic composition, a surreal composition. without apparent hidden meaning, without some mystery hiding in the shadows of the unconscious.

something surreal, metaphysical. a scene created within a dreamlike vision. but I do not know if it carries with it any subliminal message. certain visions, like certain ghosts, emerge and materialize autonomously, independently of us, independently of what the unconscious wants to communicate, in direct or symbolic ways.

the eyes are the mirror of the soul. but here they are impenetrable. not by virtue of glasses of course. but by virtue of this white light that functions as an impenetrable explicit barrier.

“The man is going out, or is posed there in a frame He could be an important element in the still-life of the scenery”.
I think he is an integral part of this still-life composition. a still-life. without a reason. without a origin. a black shadow that emerges from the depths of a dream and you feel a sense of restlessness because you do not know what he wants from you... :)

Roberto De Mitri Maria... :) ... Jos is always very attentive and profound in his comments and his considerations are always relevant. His comments are interesting and insightful.

in the specific case, about this picture, from my point of view, I propose to replace the word "enigmatic" with the word "surreal". the enigma involves, about me, by definition, a mystery, something hidden to which reason tends but not always it is able to reach and unveil. or anyway something implicit hidden behind something symbolic.
surreal is something that appears to us not real, but that does not need to possess any hidden meaning. it is like inside a dream, something that is perhaps created by the unconscious but without a specific reason or meaning.
this man of shadow is something strange. surreal. without any reason ... I do not believe that what we see inside a dream must necessarily have meaning for us. some ghosts exist independently of our deepest nightmares... :)

David Durst How many people knows how important is to wear glasses in from of the miroir to see shadows... :)
You have just definitively demonstrated this importance ! But you must have some special glasses and a large part of imagination... You have both of them ! Lucky you are...

Roberto De Mitri, Citizen of the World
Roberto De Mitri David... :) ... we can say that we do not need glasses to see the shadows. or to see better through them. rather. by their nature, coming from within us, it is easier to see the shadows with our eyes closed. almost a paradox.
so maybe we can consider these glasses an integral part of this mask. of this face of shadow. two sparkling eyes able to pierce the shadows. but at the same time, it is impossible for us to see the eyes of this man. they are impenetrable eyes. indecipherable eyes. eyes of light that possess the qualities of darkness... :)

Dana Winkelman, Amateur photographer
Dana Winkelman Roberto. The photograph has an intensity that is hard to describe. I like the story. I feels as if something kinetic is about to happen. The viewer is poised on the edge of ? something... It also feels Orwellian to me, somehow threatening. Very cool as usual. All the best. Dana...

Roberto De Mitri Dana… :) … this time it's my turn to arrive late at the party! ;)

yes, a picture a bit strange. a bit enigmatic in the “hitchcockian” sense of the term (you say Orwellian. I thought to Hitchcock). there is a story, yet it escapes any our attempt to guess the direction of this story. indeed it probably goes in the opposite direction.

“The viewer is poised on the edge of?” ... :) … probably on the verge of another, mysterious, indecipherable Twilight Zone! :)
Ciao Dana and thank you very much for the nice comment!
