The First World War coincided with a great popularity of stereo photography in France. Countless stereo photos were taken by soldiers at the front. After the war, the soldiers sold their negatives or rights to commercial publishers who printed the stereo images on glass. The horrors of the war became visible and the depth effect of stereo images enhanced the experience. The slides were a real sensation in the 1920s in France.
War in Depth is dedicated to French glass stereoviews of the Great War and tells the story of the photographers and publishers that created them.
