This close up depicts a transition and tension within what is an otherwise unremarkable image. There is a compulsion which verges on the abject while the viewer tries to establish what they are looking at. There is little of reference to indicate its orientation or where it might be sited. The transition between youth and older age is indicated by the black and white bristles and general cragginess of the subject. The image title also refers to the change of life we experience at this time.
