Aranza recently led a workshop in Manassas on working in a multigenerational world.

The tintype photo shows a young soldier in uniform, his pale eyes barely visible under the brim of his hat. They are eyes that have seen hell on earth. To the right is another tintype, showing a young man with closely cropped hair wearing an unzipped jacket, collar up, over a white crewneck shirt.
The eyes and the steely expression are the same. It is the same man.
The images are part of a collection of tintypes displayed in “War and Peace,” a temporary exhibit at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle.
