hello. more diptychs today.
i’m finding that putting together 2 photos like this is a good challenge. i think there are a few different ways to combine images in a diptych. i can combine 2 photos that share similarities … a similar color palette, pattern, composition, or other symmetry. along those same lines, i can combine 2 images with the same subject matter (here is a good example of this). the first diptych above fits into this category i think.
on the other hand, i can put together 2 photos that don’t share any obvious similarities (and these are the harder diptychs to do well, i think). but when it is done well, the result is surprising and often quite striking. i’m still working on this method. stay tuned.
and i wanted to share this: First Year Teacher to His Students (by Gary J. Whitehead). summer feels very far away right now, though i’m not sure why. reading that poem helped.
a good day to you.
