An introductory technical history of 3-D photography presented by cinematographer Wiliam Klayer. This lecture and accompanying demonstrations will encompass the history of Stereoscopy, covering in detail approximately 150 years of history, emphasizing developments during the 19th century.
The discovery and invention of stereo still photography and its direct connection to the invention of motion picture photography will be examined, as well as its impact on popular culture.
