Congratulations to Dr. Brian May and his team at London Stereo, and all the stereophotographers represented in Stereoscopy is Good For You: Life in 3D, which is officially out today! I am honored to have this stereophoto of some of my extended family (not me—I’m behind the camera) in the book, which I originally submitted in response the question of ‘what has brought you comfort/joy during the pandemic lockdown’…when I took this picture, it was the first time I’d seen any of these people—my grandma, mother, brothers, aunts, uncles, in over two years, and it was definitely joyful.
Above is a bonus animated version of my original stereophoto, the cover of the new tome with a beautiful shot by Jane Sabini, and UK interview article from Big Issue in which uses my stereo! The latter short feature is also a good nutshell introduction to stereophotography; read it online (though without my image) here. Thanks to stereo friend Andrew Lauren, whose great picture is also seen featured, for sending this.
Via the IG accounts of Dr. May and London Stereo, as well as my stereo friends Sarah Falk, Elisabeth F, and Mark Defalaise (thank you all), here are scenes from the official book launch exhibition at Proud Galleries in London, which runs through March 2023! As you can see, stereos are on display as both 2D prints and 3D stereocards.
Finally, here is an alternate version of my stereo, which does include me (at lower right). Because of the occluding furniture, I feel the one I submitted is superior, though less populated :)
Thank you again to Dr. May, London Stereo, Proud Galleries, and my thoughtful stereo pals. If you have any interest in 3D, check out the new book (click on the title above) and/or visit the exhibit in London!
