Bent portrays the persecution of gay people in Nazi Germany. Mayhew’s close crop of a photograph of Ian McKellen conveys a disturbing mixture of anguish and anger. For the background image, he used a detail from Großstadt (1928) by the German expressionist Otto Dix to suggest a society oblivious to gay suffering.
