Original Photography and Photo History by Ian Wallace.

New Stereo photography Book and talk!

Newbury through the stereoscope book cover

My latest project tells the story of my hometown of Newbury through the stereo cards of Victorian and Edwardian photographers. Cards of newbury are hard to find and this book gives a “now and then” 3D tour of the town and includes some nearby locations like Highclere Estate. Stereocards were a Victorian craze that lasted into the early part of the 20th Century. They were originally produced by professional photographers to be collected and viewed at home. The 3D is as fun to enjoy today as it was when the cards were first created. The viewers were once as common in homes as TV’s are today and provided great 3D viewing entertainment. A talk based on the content of this book is now available in my list of in-person talks.

In this little book there are over 30 rare 3D views of the Newbury area for you to enjoy. Each is presented in its original card form and as Anaglyphs. A pair of Anaglyph glasses are included, and you can view the 3D with these. Many images also have modern views of the same location and a history of the photographer who created them.

My photography

My photography draws on a wide range of influences and reflects the way my curious eye sees the world. All my original photographic images are taken on film or using alternative photographic processes in formats from 35mm to Whole Plate (8½”x6½”).

All my original photography is usually available to purchase as handmade darkroom or alternative process prints. Please contact me for commissions for portraits, projects and print requests.

You can learn about my most recent projects and research and photographic work in my blog.
