Dan Mountford's Surreal, In-Camera Double Exposures

In this age of Photoshop and other tools of digital manipulation, it’s easy to cut and paste and blend elements of several photos into a seamless whole. What makes Dan Mountford‘s dreamy double exposures so impressive is that he does all of the hard work — combining two very different images into one startlingly complete picture — in camera, resorting to digital tools only when he needs to change tones, remove spots, or add lines. The gently, pleasingly surreal results include a forest projected onto a Buddha sculpture, an eye peaking out between the fingers of a hand, and a woman crowned with the singular buildings of Brighton’s Royal Pavilion.
