This monochromatic picture has a high contrast effect but still keeping some gray tones. Its distinctive feature is the lighting, specially used to create a cozy and intimate atmosphere.
In The Mirror we cannot observe the whole room, just the wall with a mirror that reflects the rest of the room and the sensual body of a young man. This beautiful picture is created by the author in order to express a feeling of reserved sensuality.
The intention of the photographer Daniel Rogua is to represent mystery and sensuality. This piece of art is inspired in the Venus of the Mirror, by Diego Velasquez, work where the center of attention appears reflected in the mirror with a model sensually posing for the artist.
Nonetheless, The Mirror offers a more contemporary look, because the mirror reveals another dimension of this man. This work is ideal for people who do not want to hide their sexuality, have a courageous spirit and wish to make a cult of the body’s natural beauty.
