TALK. Animal Kingdoms: Stereoscopic Images at Manchester Museum

TALK. Animal Kingdoms – Stereoscopic Images at Manchester Museum, Manchester 22 September 2016 Entrance is free — Visit now

Join Denis Pellerin of the London Stereoscopic Society for this fascinating insight into the history of stereoscopy, inspired by Manchester Museum‘s Animal Kingdoms: Stereoscopic Images of Natural History exhibition (17 August – 31 October). Pellerin will be tracing the origins of this photographic technique, for which objects are shot from two different perspectives; the final image is viewed through a stereoscopic viewer.

Artist and photographer Jim Naughten has adopted stereoscopy, which dates back to the 1800s, for his showcase of objects from the museum’s collection in Animal Kingdoms: Stereoscopic Images of Natural History. See specimens of an Atlantic white spotted octopus, a transparent chameleon and a great Indian hornbill in an entirely new way.
