Adde Adesokan AKA theblackstar is a photographer and Creative Director based out of Hamburg, Germany. His project called Triptychs of Strangers is a series of pictures shot on the street of random people shot in a series of triptychs – that is, his photos are divided into 3 sections.

In order to gain a better understanding of the object we have been studying so far, we have compared it to other similar objects. The following are my favorite form + composition, assembly, and materials diptychs, respectively.
