The camera has been modified with in-camera masks which then takes two exposures and merges them together in the vertical slats you see in the photos. Her series,  Quantum Blinkdefinitely have movement in them, reminding me of those old hologram cards from childhood.

Very interesting effect.

Strange and unique... I liked the originality and creativity and always love to hear about special techniques, though I'm not sure what I think about the outcome. To me, it's more about capturing the feel of the moment. Try my blog to catch my meaning. Google RastaRafi.
