Old Japan in 3D

There is a Flickr member who goes by the name Okinawa Soba who posts many amazing old photos from Japan. Among the most interesting images on the stream are the old 3D images by Japanese photographer T. Enami. I love getting to see old world things using techniques that are usually thought of as modern (but believe it or not, they aren’t that new) – such as 3D imaging. T. Enami used a pair of cameras to take proper 3D images and then generally put them in stereogram format. It did take me a bit of practice to learn to see a stereogram, but once learned it can be quite rewarding.

Here are some examples of the amazing 3D photography by T. Enami:
