With the purchase of his first card in 1973 May started a lifelong and world-wide search for Les Diableries, which are stereoscopic photographs depicting scenes of daily life in Hell, he has since amassed a collection of over 100,000.
In October 2013 he helped publish the book ‘Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell’ and now has realized a lifelong ambition by bringing this phenomenon, which started in Paris in the 1860s, to life. ‘One Night in Hell’ – filmed in Dolby 3D and Dolby Atmos – is a devilish and spectacular animation short that tells the story of one skeleton’s journey into a stereoscopic Hell.
