Description

This is a head-on view of a man’s face. He has very short, black facial hair and slightly longer, close-cropped, black hair. He appears to be balding. Black straps cross his forehead, holding patches over his eyes. The patches have text written in Arabic. Red text in Arabic is superimposed over the image.
