Where the expression is unreadable ?

Continuing my pursuit of catching Robert Capa's oevre in Prussian Blue, this drawing of a captured German officer, the details of the three eagles on each side of his collar, the swastika monogrammed below the eagle insignia on the breast of his coat, make a strange conundrum with the headscarf and woollen mittens. Naturally it is snow white ground with a spinney of dry sticks in the background. I am some way off catching the expression of this young man, or his handsome good looks, he might be disgusted at having his photo taken or numb with the misery of it all.
