Doppelganger Project - Lisa Picture

The beautiful Lisa was nice enough to come over today and test with me for this project that is a mix of old late 1800 spirit photos and the idea of the doppleganger myths. I'll prob re-edit this but it is coming together somewhat. I'm hoping to shoot around 15 of these with different models, and print then really large and frame them in old beat up frames


"A doppelgänger (pronunciation (help·info)) or fetch is the ghostly double of a living person, a sinister form of bilocation.

In the vernacular, "Doppelgänger" has come to refer (as in German) to any double or look-alike of a person—most commonly an "evil twin".

The word is also used to describe the sensation of having glimpsed oneself in peripheral vision, in a position where there is no chance that it could have been a reflection.

They are generally regarded as harbingers of bad luck. In some traditions, a doppelgänger seen by a person's friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one's own doppelgänger is an omen of death. In Norse mythology, a vardøgr is a ghostly double who precedes a living person and is seen performing their actions in advance."
