While artists commonly complain that much of their works value is lost
in reproduction, I should point out that in this case it is impossible
to reproduce, in a flat photograph, those qualities of the work that depend
for effect on binocularity. The images shown below are of small pieces
that were exhibited in 1999.

The job of popular (non-scientific) stereography has always been to embellish a pictorial realism. To this effect it has been a device historically favoured by photographers of exotic travel and of pornography. My interest in stereography is as a means of and as an aid to abstraction. The pieces represented below are quite varied, comprised mostly of elements that are digressions from other lines of research. In some cases an extra dimension has been appended to an image that is already abstract, in others the process of abstraction coincides with the images stereographic ‘materialisation’ by the viewer.
