In this year's Remembrance post, we remember the past by looking to the future - specifically, of the Jordan/Ference Collection, the world's largest publicly available archive of Great War stereography. See over 40 new images, and consider what they meant to the men who served.
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.
A new box of slides from Brentano's - stamped "Verdun" on the front - gives me the opportunity to make some side-by-side comparisons of both duplicate and same-subject images from my collection.
Dr. Fasser's collection came with a twine-bound set of 8 slides marked "Rheims", a common alternate spelling of Reims. But given what's on the slides, he couldn't have made them all himself - so we must examine the evidence to try to suss out whether Fasser ever did photograph Reims.
The first in a daily series on the Great War that will continue through the end of November, to honor the memories of those who fought and those who died.
A frank discussion of the notable German stereoscopic company primarily active during the Nazi era, and how its images will be presented on this blog.
