Double exposure

In art, double exposure was once a technique much used in film and photography. It was then created by exposing two images onto one negative.

Even skilled photographers had varying degrees of success with the technique. Today, image editing and video editing tools can easily create results which surpass the intended outcome of double exposures. Here it is done simply by layering two different digital images on top of each other and adjusting their level of transparency.

Christoffer Relander is one of several photographers who works extensively in double exposure photography.
