Double Exposures

- February 26, 2013 in collections, double exposure, Images, Images-20th, Images-People, Images-Photography, Photography

A compilation of double exposures, an accidental phenomenon no longer possible with digital cameras. As well as the unintentional displayed here (though the first picture is debatable, and the saxophonist too), it was a common practise to use double exposures to create what became known as “Spirit Photographs”. One of the most prolific of the spirit photographers was a man named William Hope, whose startling images you can see in our post “The Spirit Photographs of William Hope”. (Images taken from a variety of sources, including Library of Congress and Flickr Commons. See link below each picture for more info). DONATE NOW TO SAVE THE PUBLIC DOMAIN REVIEW!
