I Scream: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Dean Rossi (2012)
For this diptych, I wanted to explore a scenario in which a person tormented by his past is continually haunted by his normal life. The first picture shows a dark, and leafless tree against a gloomy sky. The image itself is not specific, but that is intentional as the colors and scattered pattern of the branches are meant to provoke feelings of despair. As for the second image, it shows a well-lit strawberry ice cream cone. Nothing too intense. However, the object is stabbed by a knife. The blood-red scheme of the second image was created with low shutter speed and aperture settings. This series of images gives the viewer a perspective of the stress that our subject is experiencing. The itself is not real, but it appears to be to him, driving him to insanity.
