9780711230392: A Village Lost and Found: An annotated tour of the 1850s series of stereo photographs

Based on 30 years of research, Brian May's painstaking excavation of exquisite stereo photographs from the dawn of photography transports readers to the lost world of an Oxfordshire village of the 1850s. At the book's heart is a reproduction of T. R. Williams' 1856 series of stereo photographs, "Scenes in Our Village." Using the viewer supplied with this book, the reader can become absorbed in a village idyll of the early Victorian era: the subjects seem to be on the point of suddenly bursting back into life and continuing with their daily rounds. The book is also something of a detective story, as the village itself was only identified in 2003 as Hinton Waldrist in Oxfordshire, and the authors' research constantly reveals further clues about the society of those distant times, historic photographic techniques, and the life of the enigmatic Williams himself, who appears, Hitchcock-like, from time to time in his own photographs.

About the Author:

Brian May, CBE, PhD, FRAS is a founding member of Queen, a world-renowned guitarist, songwriter, producer and performer. Brian postponed a career in astronomy when Queen's popularity first exploded, but after an incendiary 30 years as a rock musician, returned to astrophysics in 2006, when he completed his PhD and coauthored his first book, Bang! The Complete History of the Universe, with Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott. Stereoscopy has been a life-long passion, and his second book, A Village Lost and Found, written with Elena Vidal, introduced the genius of Victorian stereo photographer T. R. Williams to a global audience.

Elena Vidal is an experienced conservator and photo historian. She has worked as a conservator of paintings in Florence, Spain and the UK. She graduated with an MA in Photographic Conservation at the Camberwell School of Arts, and has subsequently specialized in the history of stereoscopic photography.

Review:

"T. R. Williams seems to have created 'Our Village' as a labor of love, recording the scenes of his childhood summers and documenting a place and way of life that was already vanishing through the effects of the industrial revolution. His extraordinary dedication to the project and his quest for perfection in stereographic imagery are both honored and mirrored in the years of research, photographic explorations and thoughtful presentation that have made possible this book, A Village Lost and Found — clearly another labor of love." —John Dennis, Stereo World

"The awesome thoroughness of this book is worthy of a PhD thesis...a triumph of scholarship and credit to all concerned." —The Royal Photographic Society

"It's like magic and makes me feel like a child again." --—Observer

Descrizione libro Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is the perfect antidote to the stress of life in the 21st Century. It portrays the idyll of life in an 1850s village, far from the sound of the train s whistle . The identity of the village was lost to the world for 150 years, and only by a miracle does this magical set of stereoscopic views survive, brought together for the very first time by Brian May and his co-author, photohistorian Elena Vidal. Their research is amazingly in-depth, but the book is utterly readable, and the pictures leap into glorious 3-D, viewed in the new focussing stereoscope which May has designed and produced, to bring the stereos to life, and then fold neatly into the slip-case of the book. The book gives an extraordinary insight into everyday village life at the time - with a woman at her spinning wheel, the blacksmith outside his smithy, three men at the grind stone sharpening a tool, the villagers in the fields, bringing in the harvest as well as often taking time to enjoy a good gossip. In every case the original verse which accompanied the view is reproduced. In addition, May and Vidal have researched and annotated all the views, revealing another layer of meaning, by exploring the history of these real characters, this idyllic village and its links with the present day. The result is a powerfully atmospheric and touching set of photographs. A Village Lost and Found brings master pioneering stereographer T. R. Williams s passionate life-work Scenes in Our Village to a new audience - in glorious 3-D, as never before. For an Electronic Press Kit for A Village Lost and Found click here.
