Old Paris – 1889 World’s Fair in Paris – Stereoscopic Photograph

The following stereoscopic photograph was taken during the 1889 or 1990 world fair in Paris (L’Exposition Universelle de Paris). Millions of People came to see the new inventions as talking film, matryoshka dolls, diesel engines etc.

I’ll be sharing couple of stereoscopic photographs in the following months, which show the impact, the world’s fair had on culture – especially when it comes to architecture. It was a perfect figurehead for Art Nouveau.

Notre Dame – Paris – Stereoscopic Photograph

The following stereoscopic photograph of Notre Dame in Paris was taken around 1900 or maybe during the world’s fair in Paris in 1889. To look at it through a ICA Stereoviewer is simply breathtaking and pure joy but I hope the following Video will give you the same feeling about that stereo.

I enjoy it a lot, to look at old photographs, especially at architecture and landscape shots. It makes my mind travel back in time and I’m trying to imagine how live must have been in that particular time. It also shows perfectly what power lies in photography especially if it’s used to capture historic events. We can freeze moments in time and travel back whenever we want to.

Enjoy!
