Contest Photo #11
Somebody's Kid Sister
It’s that faded quality that frightens me.
You’re going to have to keep this one super short. This photo is wallet sized. And don’t be afraid of using a foreign language, instant translators will solve the mystery. Besides, that will make the eventual finder work a little harder.

Keep in mind that A.I. can’t capture the nuances of what we’re doing here. Some computer would scan this and register “pretty smiling girl.” While we humans know that the story is infinitely deeper and more troubling. That makes this art. Our goal is to trigger some poor wretch!
Pretty smiling girl, indeed.
I think if I bake the photo I can effectively fade/age the ink I use, right? Any ideas? Or should I stick with pencil for this one?
