Brian May, creator of the 21st-century incarnation of the London Stereoscopic Company, became an Internet evangelist for 3-D photography during the recent lockdown period, and fired up a whole new community of stereoscopists, all sharing their 3-D pictures on Instagram.
For this book, the London Stereoscopic Company put out an invitation to this global community to send their stereoscopic memories of life during the Covid Years.
The range of subjects in these stereo pictures is immense, with more than 100 contributing photographers and creators finding inspiration in nature, people, pets, architecture, the sky above, and much more. This book is set to become a lasting testament to the evocative power of 3-D photography.
You can order the book, which is released on the 1st November 2022 and priced at £30, from the LSC website, as well as from other retailers, such as Amazon.
To coincide with the launch, the London Stereoscopic Company, Proud Galleries, and the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy have teamed up for a 5 month exhibition at the Proud Galleries, 32 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6BP, which opens to the public on the 3rd November 2022.
As well as viewing images from the ‘SIGFY’ book, you’ll be able to explore the history of stereoscopy through the collections of the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy and the LSC book ‘Stereoscopy: The Dawn of 3-D’ in the ‘Victorian Emporium’, and see Brian May’s own stereoscopic photographs, and 3-D images of him, in a ‘Queen in 3-D’ section downstairs. There are 3-D viewers (Brian’s self-designed OWLs) provided, as well as digital stereoscopes and 3-D TVs.
The exhibition runs until 25th March 2023 and tickets are £7 each. Details can be found on the Proud Galleries website. There is also an exclusive LSC shop within the gallery.
