Fig. 6. Dimensions: 3.5x5.5 inches, Circa 1967. I believe this is a hand tinted image, which was very popular in that period. The checked background came from me trying to copy the image in high school, I drew the grid as a way of tracing the image. I wanted to paint it onto canvas during high school, but I never finished it. I don’t know why I chose this one. I could not remove the lines; I don’t know if I damaged it or if it added value to the image over time. I saw this grid technique back in Battambang, I would walk to the art store and see them using this method to enlarge movie posters, but no one taught me this in the USA this was just from my memory; A Fragile Past: Exploring One Family’s Narrative Through the Photographs They Buried
