About the Book
Serious Jest could be the alternative title to this exercise although it would exclude the few diptychs that are traditional as in pairing, identical twin, precise ratio and dimension. Others belong more with emphasis to the division between the images, where the fold separates the two. Two-image narrative allows drama, irony, contrast, metaphor or chasm as well as the contemplation of aesthetic value. One solution often creates a problem to something unrelated, or so it seems. As the phrase goes – ‘truth is indescribable, that is its error’, and yet, vital to the human endeavour. The aesthetics of streets and byways with obligation to form point to the basic human collective behavioural sublimation. Thinking in images, until a meditation – to measure.
