Photo historian Denis Pellerin writes about his recent discovery of an original drawing from which a beautiful Victorian stereoview took inspiration. He researches the life of the artist, describes the meaning of the image and the heart-wrenching poem and stories it helped to create. A must-read article for fans of the book 'The Poor Man's Picture Gallery'.
The beautiful nude stereo daguerreotypes in the collection of W. + T. Bosshard can now be viewed in the book 'History of Nudes in Stereo Daguerreotypes'. The book has been written by Denis Pellerin who spent countless hours researching in Paris archives and describes the stories of many of the models in the images and their photographers.
Photo Historian Denis Pellerin shares with us a selection of beautiful French early 1900s stereoviews of people picnicking by the side of the road. He takes us on a journey through time, wine and stunning vehicles!
Photo Historian Denis Pellerin found a name written on the back of a portrait stereoview and writes about the discoveries he's made about the Victorian man in the image.
The Stereoscopy Blog is excited to bring you our first of many posts by photo historian, life-long stereoscopy enthusiast and Director of Dr. Brian May's London Stereoscopic Company, Denis Pellerin. In this post he describes his most recent purchase of a stereoview of two sisters, his research into it and the story about them. It gives an insight into how he thoroughly researches each image for his excellent talks, articles and books.
One 'bonus' of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic is that it has made stereoscopic event organisers look into different ways to host their events or monthly meetings online, making them accessible to many more people. Zoom seems to be the option of choice at the moment so I thought I'd share a post about how you can join in and where to find details about meetings which can be attended virtually.
These 1960s stereoviews are from a box of about 30 stereo realist slides which someone didn't know what to do with (when you're a stereoscopy nut with quite a niche interest these things have a habit of finding their way to you!). We're going to explore them!
You don’t need expensive cameras or software to make your own stereoscopic 3-D images. It’s relatively easy and there’s currently a real buzz on social media with people making their own stereoviews with smartphones and sharing them, especially on Instagram, so this tutorial will be keeping this in mind.
I'm aware that not everyone will be able to use Stereo Photo Maker to make stereoviews, especially some Mac users, so I thought I'd write a tutorial to explain how to align images and turn them into a stereocard which can be printed off - all whilst only using Photoshop.
