You may have seen collections of the stereoscopic (3-D) images of the First World War. Many of these images are great, but they require handheld or large box-shaped viewers to examine. And even with this equipment, though, the images are small and never quite come to life. Well, things are changing. Carlos Traspaderne of the Casa de la Imagen Cultural Center in Spain has decided to apply new technology to viewing these images and the results have been terrific. He says he uses mirrors to improve the clarity and enlarge the images. He has developed a four-minute sampler film of what he can do with the originals, which come on cards with two slightly offset versions of the same image.
