Multiple Exposure Photographs by Ellen Cantor Evoke the Pleasure of Childhood Reading

September 30, 2019

Laura Staugaitis

Still life photographer Ellen Cantor meditates on memories imbued in familiar objects. In her series ‘Prior Pleasures’, Cantor uses her childhood book collection to create multiple exposure images documenting the literary loves of her youth. Each image features a single book on a black background, with the pages ablur between the illustrations, cover,  and end page art.

The photographer shares that she finds inspiration in Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura work, challenging her to “explore the myth of the photographic truth and… create a new way of looking at childhood icons.” Cantor seeks to capture the pleasure of losing oneself within the page of a book, a tactile experience that has become more rare with the advent of e-readers and the competing content on smartphones.

“My photographs are about time, loss and memory. I seek to understand how life proceeds and then ultimately disappears, the artist explains. “I document the artifacts of the past to enrich the present. I am interested in reimagining the family photo album and objects that hold personal histories in order to explore the distillation and persistence of memory.”

Cantor is based in southern California, and is represented by dnj gallery and Susan Spiritus Gallery in California and Truth + Beauty in Vancouver. The ‘Prior Pleasures’ series was most recently exhibited at the West Hollywood Library in spring 2019. You can explore more of Cantor’s memory-soaked photography on her website.

You can see more of her photography over on Tumblr, and if you liked this you can see many more examples of multiple exposure photography right here. (via fstoppers)

This winter Chicago-based photographer Satoki Nagata produced a series of abstract, black and white street portraits of people caught in the frigid elements. Nagata says that he lights his figures from behind with a flash using a slow shutter speed and doesn’t rely on double exposures or glass reflections as it may appear. The results are some pretty striking photographs of people that look nearly transparent yet appear to be almost perfectly surrounded by a crisp halo of light. Nagata’s primary work centers around documentary photography which is also well worth a look.

Photographer Christoffer Relander (previously) just finished a new series of photographs titled We Are Nature using double and triple exposures that incredibly are all done in-camera with a Nikon D700. I love the direction his work is taking. See more on Behance.

Superb Multiple Exposure Portraits by Christoffer Relander

June 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I am such a sucker for multiple exposure photography, it simply never, ever gets old for me, especially when composed as wonderfully as these recent shots by self-taught photographer Christoffer Relander who lives and works in Finland. You can see many more shots on his website and prints are available over on Behance. If you like these, also check out the work of Jon Duenas. (via the curious brain)

April 24, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Jon Duenas is a fashion, editorial, and fine art photographer out of Portland, Oregon. Mixed into his extensive portfolio are a number of stunning double exposure photographs that, as Bobby Solomon puts it, seem to show the “details of nature blooming through portraits of young women”. You can see a few more over at the Fox is Black, and on Duenas’ website. If you like these also check out the work of Florian Imgrund and Matt Wisniewski.

Analog Double Exposure Photographs by Florian Imgrund

March 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

German photographer Florian Imgrund acquired his first film camera in the summer of 2010 and has made incredibly good use of it since. All of his double exposure work is done completely in camera without the use of photoshop, and often merges human forms with the natural landscape. I don’t think I’ve been this impressed with double exposure work since first discovering Dan Mountford. You can see much more of Florian’s work on Flickr and you can follow him on Facebook.
