Collage Obsession Weekly Challenge

The theme was "Stairs" this week, with a great supplied image of a cold and lonely crumbling old archway and stone steps leading off mysteriously. I tried all week to come up with something for the challenge until this morning the idea just crystallized. The man with his bags packed is from an advertisement for "Death of a Salesman" and the woman is an altered Dorthea Lang photograph. The poem about loss of love is from Countee Cullen.

Very expressive piece- you can feel her sorrow as the man leaves- beautiful storytelling with this entry!

I can see a very sad story in your collage. The man looks very beaten, no power left. This is very touching collage, I somehow love melancholy images and stories. This is one of mu favorite!

Thank you for joining the challenge!
