Victorian Photo Tricks… Clone Photos

Victorians had a lot of fun with the new invention of the camera. They would dress up and act out scenes, decapitate themselves and use double exposure to create the effect of a spirit in the photo with them. Adding in a “twin” or clone was another popular portrait trick. They must have thought these photos of themselves acting as both barber and customer were fucking hilarious. I bet they had some good times showing off their “twin” photo to their friends. Check out some Victorian double photography below.
