Magazine editorial: Partly hidden face

Challenge #100 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
A contemporary magazine is doing an article on faces and how we rely on them to convey meaning in conversation. The editors want to emphasize this with an image of an adult where the face is partly obscured by some object close to the subject's face. They are very sensitive to the fact that an image of a woman in a religious veil will immediately bias the reader so they will accept no such image. Submit an appropriate image where the subject's face fills much of the frame (i.e., portrait-like), but is partly obscured.
