Back in 2015 you will remember when Brian, styled in Victorian attire, re-enacted The Death of Chatterton for a BBC documentary about the great poet.

Denis Pellerin captured the moment in stereo and now the images are available to you as a set of six detachable stereoscopic postcards, slickly folded concertina-like and accompanied by a Steampunk OWL viewer to bring them to life in magical 3-D.

To celebrate the launch of the unique product, Denis Pellerin, shall be doing a live online talk which you’re invited to join.

As an art historian, Denis will explore the staging for the stereoscope of Henry Wallis’s painting, The Death of Chatterton, in the late 1850s and more recently. Using similar examples, he will also show you how to recreate famous paintings and photograph them in 3-D with the Cha-Cha technique and its variants.

This FREE 30-minute talk will start at 6.30pm BST on Thursday 7th October.

Please register before 5pm on 6th October on Evenbrite using the following LINK.

See you there!
