    I think this should be in the Photography stack tbh. I'm not sure it would have a name anyway, its appears to be a blend of a B&W photo and a negative image of a document, with a pink tint. May 24, 2016 at 7:37

This is the result of developing color print or slide film in the wrong chemical. The effect is great especially that the colors look different. The image has a unique wild color and various contrasts. The picture looks great although the real color of the image is manipulated.
