The third layout that I have considered is the diptych using just the masked face and the raw, unmasked face. The results are really powerful and hard-hitting.
The resultant impression is much more powerful than the other two options so far considered. The white background makes the images stand out and the viewer can now concentrate on what is written on the mask and the raw, emotional face after the mask has been removed.
This layout option will be pursued in the next few shoots so that it can be fully evaluated for its effectiveness at getting the emotion of the message across.
