A recent unearthing of one of the earliest images of a family visiting Stonehenge, in stereoscopic 3-D, has lead to the rediscovery of an eminent family of photographers and artists from Salisbury. We explore the history of Henry Brooks, his photographic studio and his family.

I thought it'd be nice to share my small collection of glass positives taken in the Alps in the early 1900s, with a Jules Richard Verascope camera.

All of this is online over 4 days, the 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th June 2021. You may even see some familiar faces!
Photo historian Denis Pellerin blows us away yet again with his amazing research into seven French stereoscopic collodion glass negatives. He uncovers the stories of the nineteenth Century firm in the images and the photographer who took them.
I set about scanning and digitally cleaning a little collection of unknown glass negative stereoviews, with a nice surprise!!
The Classic Photo Magazine have recently launched their new online resource 'The Classic Platform' which features a number of fascinating photographic and stereoscopic history articles and papers which they can't fit into their twice-yearly magazine.
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.
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!
These stereoviews were in a set of 15 which were originally made in France in the 1910s. The mounts show they were taken by a photographer with a studio in Paris and the clothing style shows French military uniforms as well as French fashion typical of the era. We're going to examine them and see what information we can find.
