Juxtapositions

I have always loved the word juxtaposition. Not because of the meaning but just way it sounds. To me, it just sounds and looks like a fun word.

Juxtaposition is when two things are placed (or seen) close together with contrasting effect. When I was an art gallery curator I used the word a lot as in many cases contemporary art is about comparing and contrasting different things - reality vs imagination, good vs evil, man vs nature, rational vs irrational…

Rather than play games on my phone, I often use the Union app to experiment with the juxtaposition of two photos to create an fun or intriguing narrative.

This blog is a exhibition of some of my recent juxtaposition experiments. It is like a free exhibition that you can view anywhere you like, as often as you like.

Hope you enjoy…..
