A TRIPTYCH is a set of three associated artistic, literary, or musical works intended to be appreciated together.
I created this triptych from three separate photographs of a vintage typewriter. The result of hanging these three images side by side on a wall is stunning especially with three large canvas prints. Although three framed and matted pieces would also look rather cool.
I also offer other fine art photographs featuring this fine old machine that I own – a classic vintage Woodstock metal antique typewriter, like this poster made from fragments of the typewriter – https://edward-fielding.pixels.com/featured/1-vintage-typewriter-edward-fielding.html
Or this more story telling still life image create with the author and writing process in mind.
A typewriter is a mechanical or electro mechanical device with keys that, when pressed, cause characters to be printed on a medium, usually paper. Typically one character is printed for keypress, and the machine prints the characters by making ink impressions of type elements similar to the sorts used in movable type letterpress printing.
After their invention in the 1860s, typewriters quickly became indispensable tools for practically all writing other than personal correspondence. They were widely used by professional writers, in offices, and for business correspondence in private homes. By the end of the 1980s, word processors and personal computers had largely displaced typewriters in most of these uses.
The above “low key” photograph creates a sense of drama by taking an already dark object, the black painted vintage typewriter, and puts it in a dark room with lighting that highlights the sliver keys and white accents.
Low-key photography is a genre of photography consisting in shooting dark-colored scenes, and emphasizing natural or artificial light only on specific areas in the frame. This photographic style is usually used to create a mysterious atmosphere that only suggests various shapes, often graphic, letting the viewer experience the photograph through subjective interpretation.
