Marcel Meys was known as the photochromist because of his artistic and technical abilities that enabled him to use ‘special effects’ to create artistic and moody compositions. Meys’s work can be considered a forerunner of modern multimedia presentations with its image projections that were done to accompany poems and even singing and dancing.
