Photo historian Denis Pellerin, from the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy, will discuss the advent of the Crinoline Cage, the relative freedom and feeling of safety it gave women, the mockery it generated in men for over a decade, the multiple cartoons and stereoscopic cards that made fun of it, but also the high penalty thousands of women had to pay, victims of an outrageous and tragic fashion which was praised by some but judged indecent by others. Denis is described as “Probably the foremost Stereo Photography historian in the world right now” (quote from Dr. Brian May, 2021).
The images will be presented side-by-side and can be watched in 3-D using a lorgnette-type viewer.
