Description

Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a man facing the viewer frontally. He is seated in front of a white background, and he has short, light-colored hair that is parted on the left side of his head. The source of light hits the right side of his face, and the left side is darkly shadowed. He is wearing a gray suit, patterned tie, and white shirt.
