Photographic Practice 1

History of Multiple Exposure Photography


Idea Generation

I have been fascinated by this kind of work ever since I saw some of Idris Khan’s images which he created using works by Bernd and Hiller Becher who used to create typologies of industrial building and architecture such as Water Towers, Cooling Towers, Gas Tanks, Water Towers, Collieries, Buildings.

But then I discovered some more photographers who were creating similar images to Idris Khan except they were using DSLR Cameras and Daniella Zlacman uses Her iPhone to create her images with n app called image blender and as she puts it ‘a lot of trial and error’ to get the results she wants.

Other artists, I looked at are Pep Ventosa, Alessio Trertoli, Stephanie Jung, Doug Keyes, Thomas Vanhoost and Grant Legrassick all of whom have different methods for creating their images.

and here are the some of the images that Idris Khan created from the Becher images except for the sheet music and London’s Tower Bridge.
