Negative Influences: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Matthew Rich (2013)
The concept behind my diptych is supposed to represent the negative stuff that affects peoples lives. The pills represent a barrier in peoples lives that isn't easy to work past. They have a negative impact on your ability to perform yet it is hard to quit whatever is bringing you down. The kid that looks unmotivated is what the negativity does to people. To make my diptych I took about thirty different photos and selected the best two. I edited them on photoshop and placed them side by side. I made sure they were aligned correctly so that it didn't look bad.
