I'm playing around with light in this one. Not exactly a Vermeer, but you get the idea.
I imagine this guy is in solitary confinement, with one small window high above providing the only light. His crime? probably unpaid parking tickets.
Or maybe he's a prisoner... IN HIS OWN MIND. Dude.
OR - I think this is the one - he's just going through initiation for a fraternity. You know, that fraternity where they lock you in a room, naked, with one small window way up high. Yeah. College is important.
