The Wonderful World of Stereograms

Oliver Wendell Holmes has invented a stereoscope in 1831 and you may have guessed stereograms were invented right after that. According to Wikipedia “stereogram is a pair of two-dimensional panels depicting the view of a scene or an object from the vantage points of the right and left eyes”. The beginning of the computer era has brought stereograms of the new generation which were hiding original 3D image in some originally textured 2D image. I remember those days when we could find these stereograms on the pages of popular magazines, exercise books etc. Well, here is a brief of nostalgia for you – just some interesting stereograms from our childhood.

Taking a Picture of a Picture from the Past in the Present

As of late, we’ve discovered a website named Dear Photograph that collects unusual photographs. Most of the photos exposed on this site are simply pictures in the pictures with incredible time lag within them. These photographs depict what can be seen as two separate pictures within one frame, with an illusion of a smaller version of the picture within itself. It’s however not a photo collage, upon closer inspection it appears that each picture is embedded into the same reality, seamlessly blending with the surroundings. We feel as if the displayed subjects go beyond the pictorial space, they reflect the past time in the presence, which is enormously touching to see.

Bringing more focus and attention to what was before in the childhood and how everything changed, so quickly and so strikingly, make us think of those bright times in our lives and plunge into memories, feeling a little sad and happy. If you find this photo effect exciting, you can take this simple idea and make your picture of a picture from the past in the present – Dear Photograph welcomes any submissions. That might be your enthralling retrospective experiment.
