Description

Black-and-white, bust-length image of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is seated in front of a black background and wearing a long-sleeved, black shirt that blends in with the background. He is wearing a fitted cap that is covered with light-colored, beaded decoration. He has dark hair that is combed back. His eyes are closed and he has a dark pipe hanging from the left side of his mouth, which he is holding with his proper left hand. A light-colored collar is visible from underneath his dark shirt.
