A diptych is a photograph that uses two different or identical images side by side to form one single artistic statement. The two images can literally be in contact with each other, or separated by a border or frame. There are also diptyches in painting and drawing.

Merriam-Webster defines diptych as: a picture or series of pictures (as an altarpiece) painted or carved on two hinged tablets, or: a work made up of two matching parts.

In Photography, a diptych is a pair of photos that work better together than separately. Often they are presented in a hinged, matching pair of frames. An example might be a portrait of parents on one side of the diptych and the couple's children on the other.
