Series of stereoscopic images based on newspaper material.
Anaglyphs are shown as C-Prints, posters or wallpapers.
For each photograph, a second picture is slowly built in order to recreate a binocular and stereoscopic vision of the scene. This second image, almost identical to the first one, shows the same scene from a slightly different angle, just as the second eye of the photographer saw it at the moment of the shooting. To do so, I need to show in the recreated image some parts of the scene that were hidden in the original view. It requires a work of imagination and extrapolation. The two images, when superimposed and seen through coloured lenses glasses, reveal a 3D reproduction of the scene. The technical process this project uses is called "anaglyph". It seems both archaic and futuristic. Indeed it dates from 1853.
