A Portrait in a Snapshot

Although this is clearly just a snapshot, I love the way that it's almost like a renaissance portrait in the arrangement of small details which are suggestive of the bigger life of this young man beyond the instant of the photograph. The boots and turned up jeans suggest a kind of 1950s 'rocker' look, the dog is a slightly softer element, the first word of the title of the magazine is visible when you enlarge the picture and is "Hunting...", I have no idea what the little piggy's head on the sofa is about but the detail I love most, balanced on the back of the sofa, every rocker's must-have accessory: his comb!
