Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a man in profile view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is standing in front of a dark background and his proper right arm is stretched out in front of his body and bent down at the wrist. His left hand is placed on his hip. There is a light-colored piece of fabric wrapped around his head, which falls down his back and is draped over his left forearm. He is wearing a large, hoop earring on his left ear and there is a beaded bracelet on his right wrist. He is wearing dark, satin pants and his feet are bare.
