Black-and-white waist-length portrait of a man, viewed frontally, standing in front of a gray background. He is gazing directly at the viewer, and has dark hair that is combed back. He is wearing a three-piece, pinstripe suit with a white shirt and dark-colored tie. His hands are in his pockets, and there is a thin, gold chain across his chest.
