The Charles Dickens Museum and The Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy have collaborated, and a stereoscope with digitised Victorian 3-D images from Dr. May's collection is on show at the Museum's special exhibition 'To Be Read at Dusk: Dickens, Ghosts & the Supernatural.'
I thought I'd invite national and international friends to join everyone at Windsor paying respects to Queen Elizabeth II, just after sunrise on the cold morning of Saturday 17th September 2022.
I thought I'd introduce you to stereoscopic daguerreotypes, one of the earliest forms of photography and stereoviews, and indeed, one of the most expensive and fragile too. You don't often come across them, but when you do, and you're lucky enough to see one of the beautifully tinted ones, you'll stop in your tracks in awe! They really are the jewels of stereoscopy.
I'm so fortunate to welcome Chris Sickels, aka Red Nose Studio. He's an Indiana-based artist who creates 3-D illustrations and stop-motion animations. I've asked Chris if he would introduce Displacement: A Stereographic Journey and explain his background in stereoscopy.
As a grand finale to The Stereoscopy Blog's way of celebrating Stereoscopy Day, we'd like to offer you a free download of the never-before-published book by Denis Pellerin: 'Henri Lefort: The Ultimate Entertainer.'
Since the QooCam EGO was released recently, I've been asked quite a few times how I think it compares to other compact digital stereo cameras, so here's a post to do exactly that, especially for Stereoscopy Day.
I'm very fortunate to welcome to the Stereoscopy Blog British artist Jim Naughten. He uses photography, stereoscopy and painting to explore historical and natural history subject matter in a beautiful and unique way. He's written something special for Stereoscopy Day to celebrate the art, explaining how he got into stereoscopy and how he uses it with his work.
We welcome back to the Blog, especially for Stereoscopy Day, photo historian Dr. Peter Blair. In this article he discusses a great passion of many 3-D photographers and collectors: going back to locations in Victorian stereoviews. He not only recreates the images over a century later, but he explores the understanding and appreciation of them.
I'm so pleased to welcome to the Blog my friend Andrew Lauren, from the US. I've often admired Andrew's stereoviews, which he's taken with one of his stereo rig setups, and eventually asked him if he'd like to write a post to explain the setup. Here it is, especially to celebrate Stereoscopy Day! Thank you so much Andrew!
I'm honoured to welcome to the Stereoscopy Blog my friend and US interdisciplinary lens-based artist Colleen Woolpert, especially for Stereoscopy Day! She explains how she got into stereoscopy and introduces her work.
