Artists and Examples of Double Exposures


A double exposure is the superimposition of two or more exposures to create a single image. Double exposures are used by many photographer artists today particularly with our new and emerging technology today. Duane Michals creates double exposures using his self-portraits and different objects of his own. He also creates them with specific environments such as the individual’s home, bedroom or small space that is inclosed, even against blank walls. He accepts the fact that spirits are not visable in photographs however, he has created some double exposures which make it look like they are real and seen in his. I also found some others I came across where two people in the photograph was placed on top of eachother or the individual would be placed in a setting like the beach or with other relatives, here are some that I collected: These are why I was so inspired to apply it to my artwork!
