Qajar Stereoscopic Photos on Show

To mark International Museum Day (May 18), City Photo House Museum in Tehran has put on display a rare collection of photos not seen before. 
The exhibit opened on May 15 and includes 50 stereoscopic pictures taken during the Qajar era (1786-1925), Persian website Tandismag.com reported. 
Stereoscopy, sometimes called stereoscopic imaging, is a technique used to enable a three-dimensional effect, adding an illusion of depth to a flat image. Most stereoscopic methods present separately to the left and right eye two photographs of the same object taken at slightly different angles. The two-dimensional images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3D depth.  Some of the photos on display have been taken during the visit of the fourth Qajar ruler Nasser al-Din Shah (1831-1896) to Khorasan Province (now divided into three provinces) in 1864. The remaining photos belong to the first trip of Mozaffar al-Din Shah (1853-1907) to Europe in 1900.
