Black-and-white, bust-length image of a man who is turned slightly toward the left side of the image and gazing at the viewer. The lightsource hits the left side of his face, and the image is from a slightly lower vantage point. He has dark hair that is neatly combed and he is wearing a dark jacket and a white, collared shirt with thin, black stripes.
