Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
In France, around 1860, from the loins of a traditional national fascination with all things diabolical, was born a new sensation – a series of visionary dioramas depicting life in a strange parallel universe called ENFER – Hell – communicated to an eager audience by means of stereoscopic cards, to be viewed in the stereoscopes which had already become popular in the 1850s.
The definitive book - both of illustrations and research is now available for pre-order and is due for release on 10 October 2013. Diableries, Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell from Brian May, Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming.
