A heavily distorted black-and-white photograph which shows a close-up of a person as they lift a cigarette to thier mouth to inhale. The heavy distortion makes the figure's head, which is photographed from above, appear as though it is situated in a grey nondescript space alongside the hand, cigarette, and shoulder. A layer of white bubble shapes rendered with simple line covers the composition, varying in size as they stretch across different areas of the photograph.
