The psychedelic background reminds me of some of the stuff Ryan McGinley has shot in caves. The pose would seem to even further suggest him, except that he’d shoot in a studio with more even lighting and acknowledgement of the camera.

Were I to see this image in a magazine, I probably wouldn’t give it pause. But the way it is presented here–on what appears to be a cheap bathmat, suggesting an implicit POV shot–contributes a luridness in which I am always inclined to revel.
