Stereoscopic Kashmir

In an unusual burst of creativity triggered by the boredom of Sunday's curfew, I decided to try my hand at animating old stereogram images of Kashmir.

The technique I used is called Wiggle Stereoscopy. These photographs use animation to produce a 3D effect by alternating the left and right images of old stereogram images of Kashmir, originally intended to be viewed in a Stereoscope.

We can imagine the scene as the photographer must have pictured it in his 'mind's eye'. The images may be somewhat jerky but it is a unique method to create the illusion of depth in photographs. Plus no special 3D glasses are needed 🙂
