Stereo photography

  • Mirror-construction and 2 screens, connected to 2 camera's in the entrance-hall of the museum, creating a three-dimensional surveillance view from the square outside. Biennale Gelderland, Valkhofmuseum Nijmegen 2011

  • Mirror-construction (Wheatstone) and screens connected to 2 outside surveillance-camera's, creating a three-dimensional surveillance view, Archipel Apeldoorn. Crossed Eyed viewing. Cross eyed viewing is a variation on free-viewing where the images are deliberately transposed right to left and left to right. Raising a finger halfway between the image and your eyes then focusing on the tip of your finger will cross your eyes. The images will be out of focus so if you then move your finger towards the images concentrating on the finger tip the images can be brought into focus and merge.

  • New Saints. Crossed eyed viewing

  • Nude, ascending a stairway in Arti et Amicitiae Amsterdam. Crossed Eyed viewing

  • Delft by reflection in the canals. Left and middle image: Free-viewing. Try to defocus your eyes so that they look straight ahead, with lines of sight parallel, as if viewing MagicEye photos. You may see 3 images; if so concentrate on the central image, which should appear in 3D. This method is easiest for smaller images, say less than 120mm width.. Middel and right image: Cross eyed viewing is a variation on free-viewing where the images are deliberately transposed right to left and left to right. Raising a finger halfway between the image and your eyes then focusing on the tip of your finger will cross your eyes. The images will be out of focus so if you then move your finger towards the images concentrating on the finger tip the images can be brought into focus and merge.

Under the name “The Realists”, Carel collaborated for years with Jan Wierda, using the medium stereo photography.

The results were exhibited in installations and exhibitions.

An interesting way of experiencing stereo photography is the so called Wheatstone setup where the spectator views two slightly different images via two mirrors (one with every eye). The brain then fuses the two images and merge them into one 3-D image.

Carel continues to experiment with stereo photography, using positive film and pinhole camera’s.

He also gives workshops, see “Workshops”.
