“I will be photographing it in colour” 3D Pictures Exhibition
The “I will photograph it in colors” exhibition opened on July 4, 2013 at the History Meeting House in Warsaw, Poland and is visible until November 17, 2013. Many pictures are presented in 3D on autosterescopic displays (a.k.a. No-glasses 3D TV sets).
This extraordinary exhibition features photographs taken by Stanisław Wilhelm Lilpop in the beginning of the XXth Century. Born into a well-known Warsaw family of industrialists, he was probably the first Polish photographer taking colorful pictures in the autochrome technique. Undoubtedly, he was the first photographer in Poland who introduced colors into stereoscopic photography in 1908. All the pictures were taken with the use of a stereoscopic camera “Stéréospido A” of the French company Gaumont.
Visitors of the exhibition, organized at the 150th anniversary of Lilpop’s birth, will have an opportunity to admire around 180 photographs from the years 1908-1930, part of them in native stereoscopic 3D. The pictures, exquisite from the artistic point of view, also constitute a valuable record of social life of Warsaw, huntings and journeys (including famous Lilpop’s journey to Africa).
