Denis Pellerin and Dr Brian May CBE
Photohistorians Dr Brian May CBE and Denis Pellerin are presenting an exclusive lecture on behalf of The Royal Photographic Society. May and Pellerin have researched the little known connections between Victorian art and stereo-photography. For the first time they examine the art behind many popular stereocards of the time. The lecture accompanies the publication of a new book The Poor Man’s Picture Gallery and a display at Tate Britain.
Brian and Denis will be signing copies of the book after the lecture. Copies will be available for purchase.
The Poor Man’s Picture Gallery, is a 208-page book, the second to be published under the imprint of the London Stereoscopic Company, and comes with Dr Brian May’s specially designed Owl stereo-viewer.
The six-month exhibition at Tate Britain, London, runs from October 2014 to April 2015 where twelve paintings from the Tate collections will be displayed side by side with the stereo-photographs they inspired. Stereoscopic cabinets, also designed by Dr May, will make it possible for visitors to experience 3D viewing the Victorian way and to compare the three dimensional rendition of the painting with its original version hanging on the wall.

BRIAN MAY AND DENNIS PELLERIN IN BATH
Thursday 27th November
St Swithin’s Church, The Paragon, Bath, BA1 5LY
Photo historian Denis Pellerin, and Brian May, founding member of Queen, a world-renowned guitarist, songwriter, producer and performer have collaborated to explore the fascinating, and relatively undiscovered relationship between paintings and stereoscopic cards in Victorian times.
In the 19th century, few were able to access and enjoy directly the new works of art. Stereo cards, created by enterprising photographers of the day, reconstructed the scenes and gave an opportunity for the man in the street to enjoy these scenes, in magical life-like 3D.
Poor Man’s Picture Gallery reconstructs 15 well-known Victorian works in Tate Britain using real actors and staged scenes, and sheds light on the story of these famous paintings, and reveals a great deal about the society of the time.
