A man in a blindfold

a book cover
Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

I want an artistic image of a blindfolded man (a hostage or prison inmate) for a book cover.

The image is for the cover of a book that recounts a man's experience in an Iranian prison. For the cover I am looking for an image of a blindfolded man.

The book is very philosophical so the cover image should not be overtly violent, but be dramatic, atmospheric and emotional. The image should have artistic or dramatic lighting and evoke a lonely, distressed quality without going overboard into something horrific. Definitely no guns or weapons showing.

It should show a middle aged man with dark hair, a receding hairline, wearing a light coloured, plain, loose shirt, looking a little dishevelled. He should be wearing a black blindfold (not white as is shown in the sample photos) and look tired or distressed. Not grimacing in pain, but stressed looking.

Either colour or black and white images would work, however if it is colour, it should be muted and dark.

Please show more of the subject than the sample photos do: the full torso or a three-quarter torso would be perfect. The background should be very plain.

Also, if you would like to show the man with the blindfold resting in his hands in his lap, pondering them, that would work too.
