Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the right side of the image. The lightsource comes from the right side of the image. He is seated in front of a white background, and his arms are crossed in front of his chest. He has short, dark hair that is neatly combed and parted in the center of his head. He is smiling broadly, and wearing a black tuxedo, white shirt, and black bowtie.
