Black-and-white image of a man wearing a priest's collar. He is shown in bust-length, facing the viewer with his face turned slightly toward the right side of the image so that his face is in three-quarters view. He is standing in front of a black background. The source of light appears to be above and in front of his face, so that the front of his face is highlighted and his neck and shoulders are barely visible. He appears to be wearing a fitted, black cap, and he is wearing a black shirt with a white priest's collar.
