Since the beginning of time humans have searched for ways to convey their emotions through visual methods. Starting with cave paintings, moving into charcoal drawings and oil paintings, and eventually into true representations of reality such as photographs, photo art has captivated and enthralled people for millennia.
One of the reasons why the popularity of Triptych Art and Triptych Photography is growing is because they are a different form of art. In most homes where you get pieces of art hung up, they are usually single pieces of art. Triptych Art and triptych photography take single paintings and photographs and divide them into three pieces. This makes these paintings different in their sophistication and execution.
The triptych form has its roots planted in early Christian art. Triptych art in its early form was a popular standard format for altar paintings and reached its hight during the middle ages.
