A Portrait of a Filipina Mother and her Sons

I am guessing this was a group photo then enlarged, to cut out and frame in oval the figure of the mother. Her eyes are distant, looking away from the camera while her young barefoot boys in their cotton shirts, look curiously into the lens.

I am guessing this was their only photo of her- the mother with her boys.

Note the obscured face of one of the sons, forgotten by time.
