If you are going black and white, how about a dark sepia? Here is my take. I like the detailed texture of his sweater as well as his beard.
You're right! Why should Ibe limiting myself with only b&w and sephia now that there's the 'dark sephia' in my jargon: )Your version adds amellowed solemn tone. Thank you for your trouble.

Wrong guess I'm afraid ,ah, except for his being sweet and peaceful : ) It could be the head scarf which made you think he was Kurdish oriented,I guess. Still, it is a common piece of clothing used to prevent the farmer from sun and dust also here in the Aegean region
Thanks for your interest..
