Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

No, not your next Terminator sci-fi sequel from Schwarzenegger, but New York Public Library's own take on its collection of 19th century stereograms. The term comes from the combination of "stereogram plus animate".

Through this website, NYPL provides access to a wide selection of its archive of stereogram images, including shots of city architecture, outdoor landscapes, and even a few photos taken inside museums to bring it to 'life'. Users select composition and speed, creating an animated GIF that flickers between the two stereogram frames, giving the impression of 3D.

Give it a try yourself through the website here, and you can read an article on the artist who inspired the library to create the project here too.

And if you are hooked on these animated stereograms, check this website here too for some amazing ones by the Japanese photographer, T Enami, who shot 3D stereoviews of Japan during the Meiji Period.
