This photograph, with wide margins and flush-mounted to acrylic, is in generally excellent condition.
In high raking light, the following are visible: a tiny impression in the black area of his trousers; and a fingerprint at the lower right corner of the image. This likely occurred during the mounting process.
Along the lower left margin there are 2 small chips to the emulsion and a small yellow deposit of indeterminate nature. This does not affect the image in any way.
