Juxtaposition in composition is a technique used by many master photographers that combine several elements in a frame to create a surrealist effect or visual story. Henri Cartier-Bresson was famous for using this concept early on in his career. In the photographs below, notice how Cartier-Bresson and Richard Kalvar use juxtaposition to create dreamlike and humorous narratives.
