Visual Enigma: Pre-Photoshop

I have blog block.

Here’s a Mario Giacomelli photograph from 1964-65 that I’ve never been able to figure out. Any one want to take a stab at what exactly is going on?

PS: I'd still like to open my blog on Fridays to guest writers. Please let me know if you're interested in contributing.

I think I prefer to see it as paper.
