Diptychs

This is Diptych week.This week I did a Documentary Photography Diptych Project. A diptych is any object with two flat plates attached at a hinge. This type of art was quite popular in the ancient world.  The modern day diptych is a set of two images that work together or separately; they are a mini story in two frames. You can read more about the history of diptychs at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diptych 

I took a series of photos in Downtown San Jose, CA. I then combined several of them for each diptych to show parts of the downtown that stood out to me.

  1. Nice photos, Pattie! I especially like the bicylist breaking out of the picture plane.
