Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, facing toward the right side of the image. He is gazing toward the viewer, and the source of light comes from the right side of the image. He has short, dark hair that is combed neatly and parted in the center of his head. He is wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and dark tie, and he is smiling slightly.
