Juxtaposition is one of those highly popular adjectives you can find in photography, but what does true juxtaposition means?
Well, it basically can be defined like this, it is the photographer's choice of combining two contrasting elements inside one frame.
Nevertheless, such a simple to define concept can still lead to confusion. Such confusion starts when people start to simply combine random, unrelated elements without thinking about the meaning of the overall image.
The great trick about juxtaposition is to find two elements that create a narrative when blended together. Their relationship can be bold and ironic, or obvious and complementary.
