A photographer using both methods in one curious way…
While many photographers stick to either analog or digital double exposures, French photographer Olivier Ramonteu uses both methods. His series Alter Ego features ghostly images of twins—or so we think. Some are identical twins while others are the same person shot in multiple exposures. Because of this twist, there’s an element of bewilderment to the compositions, and it's achieved by using the two approaches.
“Half of the pictures are made with an analog camera,” he reveals to us via email. “It is an old Mamiya c220 that works with films. The other half of the project is made with a modern digital camera.” Continuing, “[I did this] because I wanted to create more confusion about what you're looking at. I wanted people to doubt the nature of what they see. I wanted the confusion to be about the subject and about the technique.”
Can you tell the difference between the two? If not, Alter Ego demonstrates how no matter the method of double exposure photography, you can produce striking, highly creative images.
