so the story goes that my brother got lost at coney island and here is the photo showing him looking for us, late 1950s. i am assuming the shot was taken by my dad, because he was the always the camera person. i have no idea who that man is, could he have been a helper? or just someone passing by as the photo was taken? what ever the case, i have always loved this photo of my brother and so decided to paint over it. i am not sure where it fits into my series, so i’ll just hold this here until i do some more thinking.

i am also attaching the photo of my dad and my aunt that i painted over, there are not a lot of photos of them as children, but i think i might have enough for a series on them… coming soon. 

these are acrylic on photo paper, 5 x 7 inches.
