People vs. Places: Double Exposures by Two Photographers on One Roll of Film

People vs. Places is a creative collaborative photo project by photographers Timothy Burkhart and Stephanie Bassos. They create double exposure photos by each shooting the same roll of film, but with a neat twist: they each stick to a theme:

This double exposure project allows us to step back from having full control of the image making process and trust in one another while allowing coincidences to happen naturally on film. Stephanie exposes a full roll of 35mm film of only “people,” and Timothy reloads the film again into the same camera, to imprint only “places” and locations to the same roll. These images are all the end result of our ongoing series and are unedited negatives straight from the camera.

Thus, each image shows a randomly created clash between a photo of a person and a photo of a place.

What’s neat is that many of the photographs don’t look like random pieces, but carefully thought-out double exposures, not unlike the ones we’ve featured here in the past.

Head on over to the Tumblr site to see all the photographs in the project.

    These multiple exposures are super duper Fugly

  • timbuktu

    I agree. Butt ugly. I have seen fantastic ones but these…waste of time

  • Jake

    I always like an experiment, but the experimenters have to realize when they’ve failed. These are just bland

  • Samcornwell

    So I have a friend called Sami Kelsh who did something very similar several years ago, collaborating with other photographers and creating a book called “&” at the end of it. Their results were far more aesthetically pleasing than this.

    This is random crapola

  • fahrertuer

    Looks a bit like HDR to me:
    interesting at a first glance, but boring after a few seconds.

  • Matthew Neumann

    Hipster art.

  • WetcoastBob

    Rubbish…. Nice try!

  • Birk

    ahhahah :D

  • newamericanclassic

    I see this like a million times. And I’m not one to criticize an overused technique, but few of these types of images are visually interesting or aesthetically pleasing. It’s always just “profile or front view of person, + meadow or forest”

    What would be more exciting (or boring) is if one person takes the first set of photos then passes it on to someone else not knowing what the other person has taken.
    It would be totally random.
