Going beyond the scope

The stereo images of Gisela Anna Kölsch are play­ing games in two ways. First­ly, her favorite pho­to motifs are toy fig­ures, care­ful­ly and play­ful­ly staged. But she also plays with those who view of her stereo pho­tos by bend­ing the rules of stere­oscopy in allow­ing her scenes to lit­er­al­ly break through the stereo window.

I nev­er knew of stereo pho­tog­ra­phy until 13 years ago, when I joined a pho­tog­ra­phy com­mu­ni­ty and saw those “strange” dou­ble pic­tures. At first I didn’t know what that was all about, but then I got hooked. Toys are my favourite sub­jects, espe­cial­ly dinosaurs and oth­er fig­ures. I’m not a per­fect pho­tog­ra­ph­er, my true pas­sion is edit­ing pho­tos and cre­at­ing spe­cial frames for my stere­os. I take all my stereo pairs sequen­tial­ly, using the so called ‘cha-cha’ method.
