Sarasota Stereo Triptychs

A local self-promotion project from the early 90's that
 examined downtown Sarasota, Florida architecture.

This project evolved from a simple consideration of an old stereo camera I had just bought. The camera features two lenses. Each half frame lens of the stereo camera is separated by an interpupilary distance that renders three dimensionality in a stereo viewer.

The first and the third half frame pictures are exposed during the same instant that the shutter release is tripped. It's a wide angle view.

The simple photo objective: present architecture in interesting combinations of light and form. And make in-camera compositions into triptychs of continuous film (no cut and paste).
