Stereo photography aligns two slightly offset photographs providing a three-dimensional view. With the aid of stereoscopes, the two images merge--replicating stereopsis, the principle by which the distance between our eyes allow the ability to perceive depth.

  • Representing a 3D image on a flat surface was first discovered in 1838 by Charles Wheatstone.
  • Victorian stereoscopic cards were introduced in 1904.
