Animated Stereoviews of Old Japan

I stumbled upon these animated stereo views of old Japan by Japanese Photographer T. Enami (1859-1929). Simple gif animation that oscillates between the positives of a stereoscopy. I think the digital animation helps the analog stereographic cards without needing immediate use of a stereoscope. What helps one see the power of the stereo views in animation is the extreme contrast between foreground, middle ground, and background. Because the image was taken to show far distances, the parallax shifts show up dramatically in those with extreme contrasts in ground. (from top to bottom “sumo wrestlers”, “clam diggers having lunch”, “along the Fuji River”, “firewood dealers”. via pinktentacle)

    David Eskanazi, who graduated last year, made a few of these of his thesis project. They were presented at his crit as static stereographic images,but he has preserved them on his portfolio website as animated .gifs like above. They can be found here. http://www.davideskenazi.com/log/animated-diptychs
