An evening with Brian May and Elena Vidal
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium
Friday July 23, 6:00 pm
Brian May and Elena Vidal will bring to New York their narrated 3D slide presentation of A Village Lost and Found. Drawing from their exhaustive research into the work methods of Victorian stereographer T.R. Williams, Brian and Elena will share with us scenes from daily life in an Oxfordshire village in the 1850s. These are among the very first photographs to document everyday life in a natural setting. Some images are accompanied by recent stereographs made by Mr. May from the same viewpoint as the Williams originals. The images were digitally restored and are exquisitely reproduced in their book published in 2009 by Frances Lincoln.
A special presentation of this talk at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been made possible in cooperation with the New York Stereoscopic Society. A limited number of tickets to the event are available to Stereo Society members. Please email your reservation request to: info@NY3D.org
