Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Victoria Hall, Settle, North Yorkshire, is hosting Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, a lecture by Brian May and fellow authors. The 3D presentation and lecture celebrates the publication of the London Stereoscopic Company's Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell by Dr Brian May CBE, Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming.
The authors - led by Queen guitarist, astronomer and photo-historian Brian May - will present a Gothic Victorian underworld of temptation, seduction, retribution and devilish fun brought alive in colour and 3D. Learn about the origins and hidden meanings of these rare 1860s French photographs which depict an imaginary underworld populated by devils, satyrs and skeletons.
Put on your 3D glasses and prepare to be surprised!
The evening will also provide an opportunity to buy copies of the book (published in hardback by The London Stereoscopic Company, October 2013, £40) and to have them signed by the authors.
