แนบ mean closeness / nearby...need to have this if we are to accurately translate the concept of juxtapose

btw...juxtapose means...closeby but for dramatic opposing effect...like putting something new next to something old...like an old photo of a child next to his more recent photo as an adult...it evokes an emotive feeling and creates interest in the viewer
