This is part of a school photography project, “Diptychs”.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the term (I certainly was!) Webster defines a diptych as “a picture or series of pictures (as an altarpiece) painted or carved on two hinged tablets” or “a work made up of two matching parts”

So, I decided to go with a series based on loneliness and longing for a loved one.
Check out the other 2 images in this series!


Pictured is myself and my girlfriend. I took the 2 pictures in separate houses and stitched them together in photoshop CS3.

    Great work. I love the mood you created. I really must learn how to do this. The colours work so well together. The lighting is perfect as well. Wonderful that one half is natural lighting and the other half is indoor ambient. Fantastic.

  • Thank you very much Bradley! It’s always nice to hear that people appreciate my work! =)
