Some 3-D History, Lo Bue style...

 Homage to Cornell, 1988 (first piece)

I'm delighted to be able to post some images from my extensive library of 3-D photos. I got into stereo photography around 1986 and got seriously hooked on it for about ten years. Luckily my stereo craze overlapped the early days of making my assemblage work, so here are some images from the late 1980's. A few of these pieces weren't photographed in any other form, so they are the only record of those works.

I reacquainted myself with all my old 3-D pics a few weeks ago when I took them out of storage at my buddy Rob's house in Vermont and hiked them down here to Sydney. Needless to say, I've been bitten by the bug all over again. I will post up some more (not of my work, but various subjects) in the near future as I scan them.

This is the first time I've posted 3-D shots as animated GIF's - it doesn't look anywhere as good as seeing them through a proper 3-D viewer, but it does approximate the effect.  I've even taken a shot of my studio today to tack onto the end.

  1. OMG these are too cool Keith I still cant sytop shaking myself.Thanks for sharing

  2. These are so interesting to see this way, but you are right about seeing the 3-D in person from your slides. John and I are still talking about how absolutely 3-D your slides were last week when you were at our house. We were mesmerized by them.

  3. Pretty cool! I had forgot about this old technique.
