BOOK STEREOSCOPY / BRIAN MAY AND ROGER TAYLOR / GEORGE WASHINGTON WILSON
George Washington Wilson was a leading landscape photographer of the 19th century and Scotland’s greatest stereo photographer. His technical and aesthetic innovations created some of the period’s most captivating 3-D photographs and established his reputation internationally. An early commission to photograph the construction of Balmoral Castle led to a number of significant private commissions for Queen Victoria and members of the Royal Family, and in 1873 came the formal appointment of 'Photographer to the Queen'.
Introduced by Brian May, this book is authored by Professor Roger Taylor, the world authority on Wilson. Taylor traces Wilson's career, captures the essence of the man, and presents a glorious gallery of his work in colour, from striking images of the Scottish countryside to portraits of royals. This book contains over eighty 3-D stereo cards which can be viewed with the enclosed Lite Owl viewer.
