Diptych ~ Open Theme: Juried Photo Exhibition

by Jessica Stolen
diptych photo example

A photographic diptych is a work of art that consists of two photographs that are arranged side by side. Diptychs can convey a story by connecting seemingly unrelated images. The use of two photographs side by side can allow the photographer to experiment with different compositions and to create a sense of balance or symmetry. The two images in a diptych can represent duality or opposites. They allow the photographer to explore different themes, narratives, compositions, and contrasts.

Praxis seeks photographic art that explores these concepts. If you haven’t created a diptych this is a great opportunity to experiment with this idea by juxtaposing two images side by side. The submission guidelines for Praxis specify that the diptych must be printable on one sheet of paper and fit into preselected matte sizes. See guidelines. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
