Missed Opportunities: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Nikki Kashani (2012)
For my diptych I wanted to depict how the constant shelter one is under and one's fear of exploring new possibilities, often results in regret of missing opportunities. To depict this I took a picture of fall-seasoned leaves being kept in the hands of one trying to prevent it from dying. Life continues and as the seasons pass the leaves undergo change. However, in this portrait, the leaves are being protected in efforts of trying to prevent it from undergoing change. Next is a picture of a girl standing and watching as a train passes by her. The translucent appearance of the train represents how opportunities can past in a blink of an eye. In a sense it is her watching her life pass her by as she stays put in her state of nostalgia forever.
