Friendly reminder that “had had” is redundant and one “had” does fine (even if it sounds a little funny).
"Had had" is not redundant. The two hads mean different things. The first had signifies the past perfect tense. The second had is the verb had, as in ownership.
And even if both hads meant the same thing, reduplication ≠ redundancy. Reduplication can carry a lot of meaning and has a lot of rhetorical value.
El Ojo de Gió (The Eye of Gió), Gió Palazzo
El Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen (The Museum of Word and Image) presents The Eye of Gió, an exhibition captured by the humanist and photojournalist Giovanni Palazzo, who documented the intense and historical moments experienced in El Salvador in the 80’s.
During the years of the civil war, Giovanni Palazzo was part of a group of journalists who made a record of faces, events and landscapes with their cameras, while covering various historical events in Central America.
The Italian photojournalist returns to El Salvador to deliver a valuable archive composed of 6,000 images, as a result of his work made in El Salvador in 1980 and developed until the security forces captured him and deported him from the country in 1989.
What if famous photographs were actually taken as “Selfies”? Lowe South Africa ran an award-winning print advertising campaign for the Cape Times newspaper featuring a wartime kiss between a sailor and young woman in Times Square, Manhattan, Winston Churchill, Jackie and John Kennedy, Prince William and Kate Middleton at their wedding, and Beyers Naude and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu celebrating Tutu’s Nobel Peace Prize.
“You can’t get any close to the news. The Cape Times. Know all about it.”

9-10. I think it goes like this?
I work with concepts; the medium follows. In the business of this “Indian Art World,” I have become impatient with the institutional prescription and its monolithic attempt to define culture as it unfolds. Native American Art cannot be commonly defined as our work moves freely through time. The viewer, collector, or curators’ definition will often convey more about themselves than that of the “Native Artist.” In the past I have struggled with this title, though I now embrace my position as a contemporary indigenous artist with belief that some forms of resistance often carry equal amounts of persistence. My current collection of work presents visual experiences in hope of inspiring creative dialogue with the viewer. I often work with an intention to contribute towards contemporary cultural development. Through education and creative risk-taking, I hope to progress cultural awareness both in and out of this Indigenous world. Let us leave fucked up stereotypes. While moving forward, we liberate the Indian artist.

Hearing about an idividual vanish is one thing but have you heard about an entire village of 2000 people just vanish? n November, 1930, a fur trapper named Joe Labelle made his way on snow shoes to an Eskimo village on the shores of Lake Anjikuni in northern Canada. Labelle was familiar with the village, which he knew as a thriving fishing community of about 2,000 residents. When he arrived, however, the village was deserted. All of the huts and storehouses were vacant. Their food supply was not depleted nor were any other supplies, there was no sign of struggle, and food was still on the flames. It’s as if they just vanished in the middle of their day.
