Tactile Photography

Have a look at the article From Stereoscopy to Tactile Photography, a new multisensory discipline, which is based on the principles of stereoscopy and the computer-aided conversion of digital images into reliefs. The tactile photographs can be produced as real objects – on 3D-Printers for example. This new discipline can be especially interesting for visually impaired artists, but is not limited to “disability arts”.

Tactile photography connects with a long-lasting interest in enhancing photography with the illusion of depth and physical space, which it shares with multi-photography, Andrew Davidhazy’s peripheral photography (developed in the 1960s), the Lumière
Brothers’ photostereo synthesis, and with photosculpture.
