Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in profile, facing the right side of the image. The man's head is in the center of the image, and his bust is surrounded by a white background. His profile creates a large, dark shadow in the right side of the image. He has short, straight, dark hair that is combed back, and a short sideburn. His eyes are darkly shadowed, and he is wearing a black tuxedo and bowtie with a white, collared shirt.
