An image of a series of five collages. The first is of a white girl in the foreground, a black and white image showing the scaffolding of a room, a white boy placed on the left and a blue house in the background.

The third image is of a group of pelicans, the back of a white brown haired woman and in the background is a section of an apartment block.

The fifth image has a mahogany crucifixion, a dried leaf behind the figure and a table of oranges, lemons and limes aligned with the outstretched arms.
