Carlos Relvas Stereo Raisonée

The Carlos Relvas Stereo Raisonné is the comprehensive catalogue of Carlos Relvas’s stereoscopic photography. Carlos Relvas (1838-1894) was the most renowned Portuguese photographer in the 19th century. This catalogue draws on an unprecedented research covering ten public and private collections of stereoscopic photography by Relvas which were, for the first time, digitized, catalogued and cross-referenced with their corresponding negatives. As a digital aggregator of physical collections scattered throughout Portugal and abroad, the Carlos Relvas Stereo Raisonné offers a completely new perspective on the early years of Relvas’s photography and on the contribution of stereoscopy for the launch of his international career. Designed to offer an intuitive and multileveled research, the Carlos Relvas Stereo Raisonné will take you on a journey to hundreds of ‘image families’ combining both negatives and prints, as well as stereoscopic and single-lens photographs. Prepare your anaglyph glasses and join the launch next 18 June at the International Conference on Stereo & Immersive Media!

Important Note: New Dates for S&I Media 2021

For a better accommodation of the large number of submissions received, the organizing committee of S&I Media 2021 has decided to add a fourth day to its programme and to schedule it over two weekends: 11-12 June and 18-19 June. 119 abstracts were submitted to this year’s online edition of S&I Media by researchers from over 30 universities and institutions from 27 different countries such as Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore and Switzerland.

This new calendar will both allow for a better accommodation of the large number of submissions received and will contribute to concentrate our programme in GMT afternoons, becoming more accessible to other Western time zones. On the other hand, this will also allow everyone to get the most of our parallel events!

Our Provisional Programme and our Guidelines for presenters are now available on our brand new website!
