For years I've been making long series of contiguous photos—not frames that have been stitched together to make panoramics, but individual images that relate visually to each other, called polyptychs. In art history, many altarpieces are triptychs, with three panels. Often the panels have a unifying visual element so that they make sense together, but they can also be complementary images that convey a new meaning when placed side by side. I aim for a series that tells a kind of visual story, where each image can also stand on its own. This is the first time I've been able to present them coherently, so I'm excited!
