There are several ways one could get results similar to the one in your example image. Among them:
Since the subject's eyes are opened by differing amounts in the example you posted, at least two exposures were used to make that image. Whether they were combined on a single frame of film before being developed, combined by printing two negatives to the same piece of photo paper in a darkroom, combined digitally using a camera with a "double exposure" mode, or outside a camera using post-processing applications, etc. would be very difficult if not impossible to ascertain.
