Originally, stereoscopy is a technique for creating the illusion of depth in an image by means of presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer. These 2D images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3D depth. Much to our surprise we found stereoscopic manifestations in one of our archives. The archive’s owner almost always takes a photograph twice. These sets of two create this unintended stereoscopy and reflect on the ease with which we can take a photograph and the fear to lose the moment without proper documentation.
