b&w photography, poem; 20×25”

“April 2 (2020) was the anniversary of the death of my father in 1998. It was particularly poignant in light of the intense first wave of COVID19 and occurred right after a March 27th housefire that had threatened also to be devastating. This is an old black and white photograph from 1918, when my father was seven years old during the Spanish Flu pandemic. I have enhanced and edited the old photograph to bring it up to date.”
