The collection includes Elizabeth Colley's captions for her photographs.

The photographs are pigment inkjet on archival paper, printed from digital images. The images are printed on sixteen sheets (two sheets include two images each), measuring about 25" x 17". Some of these photographs can be viewed on Colley's website.
