keep on truckin’
All I can say about this pairing is, “Hey, look each photo has a truck.”
The photo on the left is the first new vehicle that Harlow and Jean had bought in almost a decade. The money for the truck came from the sale of their land. It was an important photo in the original story as it showed one of the aspects of how the sale of their farm had started changing their lives.
The photo on the right, shot last Thursday, is just another summer day in suburbia.
The only thing that holds the two together are the trucks.
Sometimes the diptychs are very literal based solely on composition or repetition while sometimes they have deeper meanings.
This one is pretty literal.
