After taking my previous blog photo, I realized that if I wanted to take any more photos of the man on the bench, I would need to be more discreet. So I turned around and began shooting directly into a store window. When I went to process the image, I thought it lent itself to being an image in three parts so I cropped it accordingly. I realize that I am stretching the definition of triptych here which is often defined as “a set of three panels or compartments side by side, bearing pictures or carvings.”
I thought that using the three panels was effective because it seemed to further emphasize the man’s isolation from what was happening around him.
