Pictures that WERE displayed at some point, and not still currently available, are not instantly canon. Since they are no longer displayed, it likely means that the appearance was revised and changed for the final release of the game.
And that appearance could belong to anybody. In MGS3, Granin has a photograph of himself with an elder Emmerich (either Otacon's father or grandfather). His appearance is clean shaven with opaque-lensed glasses.
"Clean-shaven and wearing opaque-looking glasses" possibly refers to the image used in a pre-release minigame (can be seen here). It's not stated anywhere that the inspector in the minigame is the protagonist of Papers, Please.
