It's an integrated headset, so that part's easy. To identify the headset brand I'd need to see the top bearing cover since that's where most makers put their decals.
A decent local shop can also confirm the IH system so you know the pool of replacements to work from. That's determined by the exact internal dimensions of the frame's headtube. That would be hard to do from a photo, even if you lift out the bearing to show it.
