Photo chain made of back-to-back magnets

The basis for my photo chains are 2 stainless steel metal strips that I hung up next to each other.
For the chains, I just needed a myriad of W-05-G cube magnets and of course beautiful photos.
To hold two photos together, you need a total of 8 cube magnets: two magnets each on the top and bottom edges and on the back side.
Attaching them can be a little tricky; the best way is to put the pictures on the table and to slowly merge the magnets with both hands.
The amount of pictures is only limited by the length of the wall since the magnets are very strong.
FYI: Meanwhile, I figured out that also flat cube magnets of the Q-05-05-01-HN type are suitable for such chains. They are a little more unobtrusive than the cube magnets and still have enough adhesive force.
I also figured out that four cubes make an extremely simple photo stand for the office desk.
