Jakob Kähler is a photograper who specialises in a now all but unknown format – double exposed film. He uses traditional film cameras to capture an initial image of a subject, then rewinds the film one frame while keeping the previous shot in mind, he then lines up a second shot to layer over the first.
Kähler tends to prefer working with classic cars, and many of his works are captured on a secret annual drive through the Alps with 60+ of the world’s leading car designers – from Volkswagen to Bugatti. Typically the art of the double exposure has been lost due to the ease creating the effect in Photoshop – so it’s great to see people like Jakob keeping the traditional art form alive.
