Early last year, HBO's True Detective reached our TV screens and became an instant hit, putting its gorgeous double exposure title sequence in front of the eyes of thousands.

Created by Patrick Clair, a director at film studio Elastic, the sequence portrays an air of mystery, giving the viewer glimpses of locations and characters featured in the show but never fully revealing them.

Since then, double exposure has continued to be a popular trend throughout 2015 both in video and still imagery. The second season of True Detective comes with a new and just as stunning and equally mysterious double exposure title sequence, and Taylor Swift's music video for Style, which has been viewed more than 250 million times on YouTube, also uses the technique.

You can watch the video for the second season of True Detective above, and read on for more examples of double exposure and multiple exposure that we love. Prepare to be inspired.
