Double exposed in-camera

Life on a university campus is a continuous stream of intersections. Students from different backgrounds connect, scholars from divergent fields of study collaborate, ideas and concepts collide.

Photographically, double exposures allow the playful intersection of shapes and forms. Through an in-camera technique (there is no postproduction work here), two separate frames construct a singular moment.

See Harvard anew through a collection of double-exposure images, where iconic elements — bridges, towers, and gates — overlap and converge in surprising ways.

Memorial Hall & Harvard Yard


Scholars enter gateways to the Yard in the spirit of the inscription under the bust of James Walker, past president and overseers of Harvard College: “Learn where is wisdom, where is strength, where is understanding; that thou mayest know also where is length of days, and life, where is the light of the eyes and peace.”
