I'm Looking For

Highlights

A graphic with a white background with five objects distributed around the frame. On the top left is a circular, three-legged table and a small woven basket. In the bottom left is a landscape photo of a sandy location and a man-made structure running through the centre with trees in the background. In the middle of the frame is a curved, metal artwork. On the top right of the frame is a photograph of a brown, muddy, desolate landscape with waste spewing out of a pipe on the right and a woman crouched down in front of a puddle of muddy waste on the left. In the bottom left corner of the frame is a tall brown empty vase next to a vase half the size.
