Description: 

This portrait is of a WWI pilot, but it is unsure as to whether he was a real pilot or just a silent film actor. Regardless, this up close shot captures the deep emotion residing in his facial expression, one that ponders all that he's seen over a burning cigarette. The pilot gear framing his face makes the profession appear as a part of him, claiming him as inseparable from his experience.
