9783791382470: Animal Kingdom: Stereoscopic Images Of Natural History

Drawn from the archives of some of the world’s finest museums, this collection of historic specimens, photographed for stereoscopic viewing, brings the natural world to life in thrilling and beautiful ways. Since collecting fossils as a child, photographer Jim Naughten has always been fascinated by the natural world. Now a renowned photographer, he has started to experiment with stereography and has turned to his boyhood interest, gaining access to some of the world’s most prestigious natural history museums. This gorgeously produced book contains 50 images of marine life, reptiles, mammals, birds, and primates photographed expressly for viewing through a stereoscope, which is included with the book. Stereoscopy was invented in 1839 to study binocular vision. Having two eyes allows humans to determine distance and depth, and stereoscopy shows a left- and right-eye view from a slightly different angle, as we see things in day-to-day life. Looking through the viewer, readers will see the specimens as three-dimensional objects. As the images jump off the page, their incredible details become apparent—delicate bat wings, the spiraling skeleton of a python, the almost mythic form of a leafy sea dragon. Texts on the work, the history of stereoscopy, and the specimens themselves provide rich background to the project and Naughten's achievement in bringing to life a world that seamlessly melds the past and present.

Review:

"Jim Naughten is an artist who understands the transformative effects that photography can have on a subject. They are captivating enough even when seen in two dimensions. But once you plunge into the marvel of their stereoscopic depth you are transfixed. Through the act of viewing, an intangible transformation takes place. While the photographs exist in physical form on paper, they also live as an experience, a beautiful illusion held in the mind."

Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum, London
"Naughten has combined two of the fancies of the Victorian age to create a unique retro take on zoological science."

-Natural History Magazine

"Some of the specimens can be a bit startling — a severed white rabbit head, for instance, suggesting a rather catastrophic Easter — yet Naughten photographed each one straight on, giving all the animals, whether great or small, a quiet dignity, even if they’re in a flayed state . . . While we can take as many high-definition images as we like today of preserved specimens, the optic trick of stereoscopy still evokes some of that scientific wonder of centuries past."

Hyperallergic
"This is a stunning series, that also brings about a celebration of the joy of looking, a three-dimensional world in which relative scale becomes ambiguous, where one is forced to be attentive to a single subject and where the impression of time slips away."

Descripción PRESTEL, Germany, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Throughout his life photographer Jim Naughten has been fascinated with the natural world. As a child, he collected fossils he found near his home in Dover. Now a renowned photographer, Naughten has started to experiment with stereography and has turned to his boyhood interest, gaining access to the archives of some of the world s most prestigious natural history museums. This gorgeously produced book contains fifty images of marine life, reptiles, mammals, birds and primates photographed expressly for viewing through a stereoscope, which is included with the book. Stereoscopy was invented in 1839 to study and explain binocular vision. Having two eyes allows humans to determine distance and depth and stereoscopy shows a left- and right-eye view from a slightly different angle, as we see things in day-to-day life. Looking through the stereo viewer, readers will see the specimens as three-dimensional objects. As the images jump off the page, their incredible details become apparent-delicate bat wings, the spiraling skeleton of a python, the almost mythic form of a leafy sea dragon.A foreword by Martin Barnes of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London offers an assessment of the work while essays on the specimens themselves and the history of stereoscopy provide rich background to this photographic technology, and to Naughten s achievement in bringing to life a world that seamlessly melds the past and present.
