Portrait of a young Shinto priest
A young Shinto priest stands wearing a white silk robe with purple tassels and a tall peaked headdress. He is holding a yellow and red paper fan in his right hand.
The setting of the room is simple; the photograph was taken indoors in front of a dark background, in the photographer's studio.
The man's garments and his lips have been hand-painted with subtle and light colours, while the rest of the picture has been left in black and white.
