The title of this work by Geoffrey Hendricks, "Mystery Photo Triptych," should tip you off as to the nature of the game being played here: when closed, triptychs are always a collection of mystery photos, and yet once opened there should be no mystery as to the relationship between the images. But the found photos in Hendrick's triptych are automatically enveloped in a sense of mystery. Where did they come from? What's the connection between them? Is every Mystery Photo Triptych the same? Sorry, can't answer that. But that's just part of the fun, isn't it?
