Description
Literature

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, in front of a black background. He is turned toward the right side of the image and his face is turned toward the viewer. The source of light highlights the right side of his face softly. He has short, dark, wavy hair that is combed back neatly and his gaze falls on the viewer. He is wearing a dark suit and light-colored shirt.
