This book follows the advancement of 3D photography over the decades, showing how the practice has evolved and, ironically, returned to its most basic form of expression. Pursuing a career-long obsession, author Britt Salvesen explores the origins and impact of the stereoscope, featuring historic images by Jules Duboscq, Oskar Fischinger, Salvador Dalí, and others. She traces the invention to the dawn of film, and then to its post-World War II iterations, such as the ViewMaster, lenticular printing, and holography. Readers learn how 3D photography became incorporated into the work of such artists as John Baldessari, Dan Graham, and Andy Warhol. Encompassing more than 100 years of innovation and experimentation, and covering a wide range of genres, artists, and forms--from sophisticated perceptual experimentation to popular cinema--this volume shows how the mystery of 3D images remain appealing to 21st-century artists and audiences. Each book includes a 3D-viewing apparatus, to enhance readers' appreciation of the possibilities in this multi-dimensional form of artistic expression.

More than 60 million people visit New York City each year. Every single traveler experiences the city in a unique way. There is no such thing as one New York. Streets of New York is a New York photo book that celebrates the Big Apple’s tremendous diversity by bringing together over 40 contemporary photographers and their multiple perspectives on this unique metropolis. Often drawing on a strong social media presence, each photographer offers her or his personal take on New York’s unparalleled vibrancy, impact, and allure, creating both a rich collection of city photography and street style, and a visual catalogue of New York travel inspirations. Photographs of world-renowned New York landmarks and attractions like the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and World Trade Center Transportation Hub are interspersed with pictures of New York’s hidden treasures, tucked-away Manhattan charms, and lesser known, but equally interesting New York City districts—all captured with a present-day attention to detail and a wide-eyed love for the City that Never Sleeps.

Fifty percent of the world’s flower species are threatened with extinction. Each year, numerous flowers disappear from the face of the Earth without ever being documented. Indeed, many of these natural beauties remain as yet unknown to humankind. Photographer Richard Fischer can be regarded as an ambassador for flowers. For many years, he has staged graceful and endangered floral specimens in his photo studio, capturing the uniqueness and transience of each flower. In collaboration with the world’s leading botanical gardens, his strikingly original images provide the flowers with an aesthetic framework in which their power of expression and majesty remain intact. Fischer’s precise, yet delicate floral compositions record the unique color, form, and texture of each flower, while signaling to the extraordinary beauty, diversity, and fragility of the natural world. Fischer’s inimitable flower photographs have bestowed him with exhibitions around the world: at the United Nations in New York, the Palais des Nations in Geneva, and the renowned China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Richard Fischer prints are much sought after collector’s items in the art photography market and calendars of his flower images appear annually. Now, for the first time, Richard Fischer brings together his best pictures spanning 15 years in one flower photo- graphy book, showcasing his artwork and little-known floral exotica. Throughout the volume, the photographs are accompanied by informative and captivating texts, leading the reader through an unknown and dwindling world of flowers.

This is a book that pays tribute to the mythical Twin Peaks series of the 1990s that revolutionized television and created countless followers. Created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, we were introduced to Dale Cooper, an eccentric FBI agent addicted to coffee and cake, who had to investigate the murder of a popular girl named Laura Palmer. These geniuses set a precedent in 1990, and twenty-five years later, just as Laura Palmer promises at the end of the second season, they have returned to continue to fascinate the public from that small town called Twin Peaks.

Traveler and photographer Filip Kulisev, MQEP (Master Qualified European Photographer) and FBIPP (Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography) has reworked his photographs of nature scenes over the past decade to make them among the world´s best. Through his photographs, Filip Kulisev seeks to present the diversity and charm of Earth´s four basic climatic zones at different times of the year.

More than 400 photographs taken by Kulisev during his travels highlights the geographical realities about the places he has visited. If you view them with open eyes and an open mind, you will see the symphony of the four elements of our planet, whether standing in front of the blood red, sun-burning fire of Uluru in Australia, before the glacial walls of Svalbard, on the last bit of solid ground before the North Pole, or taking in the rich palette of colors from Indian summer in Maine.
