The Karo collectors edition is dedicated to a special section of our private collection of glass plates: nude stereoscopy. In 1893, Jules Richard introduced the 47×105 mm glass plate negative format and the Vérascope, a compact stereo camera. This much easier-to-use and cheaper camera made stereo photography accessible and popular. Therefore, photographers adventured to explore nude stereoscopy although at the time it was considered an offense to morals. Many of their works remained anonymous as is the case with the works from our collection. They are nonetheless valuable pieces of photography history.
The pieces from the Karo collectors edition are available in limited editions of 15 or 30 copies. They are 30×30 cm, numbered, and come with a certificate. We use handmade paper from Switzerland and Japan. Because this collection encapsulates a lot of history and breakthrough moments, we use a black, vinyl style packaging with a transparent round window.
