Apples and Oranges

Many things or even situations are often in a comparison process, where both, common points and differences arise between them. The expression “Apples and Oranges” initially refers to the apparent differences between two or more objects that make them totally incomparable. However, with a more careful reading, common elements can also be recognized and the comparison is finally possible. Considering all the above, i decided to use this idiom as a title for my project. I tried to put images in pairs that, while at first look seem dissimilar, when you look them closely, they can stand as a diptych. This is happen when some common and formalistic mainly elements, make a powerful conversation between those images.
