T.H. O'Sullivan's portrayals of Indigenous peoples are indisputably amongst the most lauded. But are they also problematic? Today is Indigenous Peoples' Day, and I will utilize this opportunity to examine the white perspectives that have pervaded our culture - through the lens of one of the "great stereographers".
Long-time readers of Brooklyn Stereography should be unsurprised that I love amateur glass stereoviews. In this article, I use a set of seven received earlier this week to highlight exactly why.
After opening this box of previously un-looked-at European glass stereoviews, I had to take into account my small Brooklyn flat and make the hard choice to deaccession them from my archive and sell them. This is never a decision I come to lightly. But limited space is limited space.
Raumbild is most closely associated with Nazi propaganda produced between 1936 and 1945. But after the war, Otto Schönstein's images were much more benign - and I needed a break from heady stuff. So enjoy the lovely animal stereoviews of Tiere aus aller Welt!
In the first full-on guest post on Brooklyn Stereography, I allowed my beautiful wife Stacey to write about some beautiful nudes by a nameless photographer.
An awful mood turned pleasant due to some of my VistaScreen 3D collection - most notably Eastbourne Model Village from the late 1950s.
Of all of the Raumbild albums created by the Nazi regime, "Aus der Lebensgemeinschaft des Waldes" might well be the most innocuous. Come take a stroll through the German forest - in 3D!
In the 1920s, change was brewing right here in the USA - by industry barons secretly (or not-so-secretly) in league with Adolf Hitler's Nazi party.
Everybody knows that the plague is coming, everybody knows that it's coming fast... OK, that's just me ripping off Leonard Cohen during the CV-19 outbreak. But here, enjoy me taking the piss out of this homophobic holiday camp while you're holed up at home!
Sadly, the stereographic community lost a great man, and I lost a great friend, on 15 January. This is something of a memorial.
