Double Exposure is an innovative digital film project that encapsulates one of the world’s oldest image making techniques with contemporary on-line distribution. Created by Louis Vuitton, the first of the series of films features conceptual artist and filmmaker, Sam Taylor-Wood.
The films will reveal two facets of each subject. The first is a personal insight revealed through treasured possessions which stimulate memories and tell stories. The second is a photographic exposure brought to life in a uniquely sophisticated portrait.
"It's a beautifully slow, arduous and a painstaking process, and I like that," Taylor Wood said of the 19th Century collodion wet plate photographic process. "I like the difference between this and how speedy everything is today, including the way we take pictures."
