The Verdun Battlefield ∽ Past to Present - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

My photo project about the First World War started in Verdun in 2009. Nine years later I started collecting stereoviews of the war. This created a nice interaction between these two passions. I’m now searching for stereoviews with images of locations that I've photographed during my photo project, but I also started taking new photos of locations that I recognised from stereoviews.

Most French stereoviews with images of the First World War contain a short description which is printed on the slide. In best case, it describes the place, subject and a year. However, most descriptions are brief and sometimes even incorrect. This makes it difficult to find out more about the story behind the image.

How my passion for Stereoscopy started - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

A new passion was born after I looked for the first time through the lenses of my Zeiss Ikon 628/8 stereoscope. I viewed an image of the battle of Verdun and the visual experience and 3D effect made a big impression on me.
