Description
Exhibitions

Black-and-white image of nine figures seated on park benches facing the viewer, in front of a gravel surface. Eight of the figures are girls, and they are all wearing plaid skirts and white, collared shirts. The figure seated in the far left side of the image is a boy wearing a collared shirt and light-colored pants. There are pigeons scattered throughout the foreground, in front of the figures. There is a row of hedges behind the figures, and trees and light posts in the background.
