Consider finding a double exposure print and adding it to your art collection this year. Photography is everywhere and pretty much everyone is dabbling in the art form to some degree. True artists who choose digital tools to express themselves creatively deserve a little recognition. Of course, all art is subjective, so I’m going to display a few of my personal favorites and you can choose for yourself.
Working in the design field has inundated my visual world with all sorts of images. Between stock photography, social media, and more, I have developed a true love of talent. Certain people just have that creativity, or eye, and their artwork will always spark my interest.
Artists who take the time and effort to create something beautiful are more accessible, but not necessarily easier to find. Think about how many images you swipe past on social media. It’s like visual junk mail! If you find yourself looking at a photograph or design piece for longer than a minute, you may have stumbled upon art. The duality of double exposure design pieces should invoke an emotion or provoke thought.
Double Exposure Plays off Duality
Most of the art I enjoy is a mixture of city life and nature. Making these two worlds collide creates a sort of visual play on words. Giving a person the freedom of birds or the stability of trees is poetic and liberating. It takes a lot of skill to harmonize both images in a way where there is no break in the fluidity of the image.

You Don’t Have to Take it too Seriously
There is a lot of great design pieces that are whimsical and fun, too. Using vintage photos and adding surreal nature shots is hilarious! I also love the way artists add a little pop of color into an otherwise black and white photo.
