on 1st viewing 
it is a typical monochromatic portrait 
of an unknown but clear-eyed young girl 
against a nondescript checked & peeling background 

such, however, are the tonalities of the print 
that parts of the girl's hair & facial skin merge into the grey scale of background 

so much so that 
if the girl were to step suddenly forward 
I expect facets of her would be checked and peeling or altogether missing 
while fragments of her face and hair would be left behind 
in the background
