Matthew has described the image:

During my frustration of looking - and not finding - work, I found solace in photography. During a day of particular frustration in looking for work, I decided to take a photo of myself to document this albeit, difficult time in my life. I chose the particular setting of my bedroom for the light, as I like to shoot in natural light whenever possible.
