Description

Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image with his face turned toward the viewer. He is standing in front of a gray, patterned wall, and he is wearing a black tuxedo, white shirt, and black bowtie. He has dark, shiny, straight hair that is parted on the left side of his head, and is combed down neatly. His arms are crossed in front of his chest and there is a faint smile on his face. The source of light hits him on the right side of the image.
