Black-and-white, waist-length image of a man in profile view. He is standing in and walking toward the left side of the image, and there is a wall in the foreground that covers the lower part of his body. The man is wearing a fitted, black hat with a small brim in the front, and he has dark, curly hair that is tied into a short ponytail at the back of his neck. He is wearing dark sunglasses, he has a long, dark beard, and he is wearing a black, long-sleeved shirt. There is a palm tree in the right side of the image and a low, white building behind the tree. There are power lines above the building.
