stereoscopic selfie from the victorian age

In the Victorian era, it was not necessarily common for photographs to be taken by women. It was unusual to take something like “snapshots”, and “selfies” were even more unusual. Thus, a stereoscopic selfie made by a woman in 1900 is like blue Mauritius. Or as I said in an earlier post: TIME PRESERVED IN GLASS.

In der viktorianischen Zeit war es nicht unbedingt üblich, dass Frauen fotografierten. Es war ungewöhnlich, so etwas wie “Schnappschüsse” zu machen und “Selfies” waren noch ungewöhnlicher. Deshalb sind stereoskopische Glaspositive, die eine Frau in den 1890er Jahren von sich selbst gemacht hat, fast so etwas wie die blaue Mauritius der Selfies. Oder, wie ich in einem älteren Artikel geschrieben habe: ZEIT KONSERVIERT IN GLAS.
