Grandpa Collage

Image: Poster Created for the Funeral

Brandon Kalinowski


I created this collage when I heard the sad news. Grandpa was dying in the hospital and we were making cards for him. I wanted to do something special, so I designed a photo shape collage.

This image you are viewing on your computer screen cannot be compared to the 20 by 30 poster I printed to Costco. It was displayed on the hospital wall and then later at the funeral. This project was very difficult for me not because of the technicality, but because of all the great pictures I had to sort through. I think the idea is rather controversial because everyone is told that "a picture is worth a thousand words". Here, 390 pictures make up only four very important words. The burning candles in the background is a picture I took in Peru. That is my Grandma's favorite part of the poster.
