At right: Photo of Morel, smiling, while wearing a blue button down shirt and sitting on what looks like a porch, as gray siding can be seen behind him. He is a young person of color, and has short hair, trim at the sides and curly on top. At left: Collage of two people of color, presumably a woman, seated, and a man, standing at right. The woman looks like she's getting ready and has her left leg out towards the man, who holds it by the ankle; perhaps he is helping her put something on. The collage is made from fabric and painted paper. Some lines, such as the legs and faces, are drawn or painted in brown. The back wall is covered with pieces of paper and fabric of various colors and patterns.
