Lets say that I was looking at a picture from a recent, significant political affair and I noticed a particularly dapper-looking fellow. Given his location in crowd, I believe that it is safe to assume that he is important politically but I can't for the life of me find any information on him. I can provide a very high-quality gigapixel image that should make it easy to identify him for anyone who knows who he is.
My question is are questions along the lines of "Who is this and why are they politically important?" acceptable here?
I was unable to find anything about questions like these in the tour or here on the Meta and I didn't see a tag about them either, which leads me to believe that they may not be. That said, I can't think of anywhere else on SE this would be closer to on topic than here (and it may just be a case of my needing to go somewhere else to find the answer I'm looking for, which is cool).
