What I really like about this spread is its use of color repetition to connect the two pages, as well as the wide spaces between the images and text. So the proximity is definitely used effectively, I also like how the text is aligned perfectly in relation to the images, as well as the text using a similar font family for the text. Additionally I like how the subject matter is intelligently connected between both sides of this spread, the BP logo hints at the subject/ topic.

In the English language, quantifiers function as determinatives.
