Double exposure with Hasselblad 500 C/M and Ilford HP5 Plus black and white film serves as the cover art for Edward Rogers' 2011 CD, "Porcelain". This effect is done entirely in-camera and without Photoshop (the red was added by the art director). That's Edward Rogers' head inside the shape of his body. ©Suzy Allman.
A few months back I had the extreme pleasure of meeting musician Edward Rogers in New York City to photograph, in glorious double-exposure, the cover art for his CD, "Porcelain".
Edward Rogers' CD "Porcelain" is a gem of 70s-era sounds but for some reason it whisked me back to my rough late-teens, 1984, Syracuse, New York. Sitting in Scott Sarmiento's kitchen while he played along with the guitar break in "Tumbling Dice" in his bathrobe. Weird where the music takes you. I'd put this on in my car on the first warm day of spring, glam-rock cranking.
Now, if only I had done this before John Lennon's "Double Exposure"...
I must say, I'm addicted to "The Biba Crowd" (you can hear it on his website). Thanks, Ed.

That's Ed up there, in the shape of Ed, but made out of trees in the middle of Union Square Park. If you'd like to give "Porcelain" a listen, head over to Edward Rogers' website and buy Porcelain from Ed himself! ©Suzy Allman
