Photograph in black and white of a white woman with short hair sitted by a table in a classroom. Her head is down, indicating she is focused on the work she is doing. Using a digital magnifier in her left hand and an automatic pencil in her right hand, she does measurements to do markings on a A3 paper. By her side, two squares.
