I found myself unable to turn away from the ghostly images on the site People vs. Places. It’s interesting how haunting the images are as they are merely photos of seemingly average people and everyday places. What I find inspiring is the almost complete lack of control the artists have on the final image. This is a testament to NOT being a control freak.
I love this series of portraits by Dan Mountford because of the imaginative juxtapositions within each photograph. By using a double-exposure technique, each portrait contains a double meaning. All of the images were created ‘in camera’, which makes them that much more amazing.
Dutch photographer Ruade DeLone creates rather painterly images with his camera, often paying homage to the Dutch masters and using double exposures, dramatic lighting, muted colors, and textured post-production to create surreal and gothic scenes with chiaroscuro.
