Oscar Niemeyer in 3D by Vicente Depaulo

Photographer Vicente de Paulo has captured some of the most iconic buildings by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and has manipulated the results so that they come to life when seen through 3D glasses.

Commissioned by art and fashion magazine Visionaire and online art-seller Paddle8, Depaulo has documented churches, museums and houses completed by the architect between 1940 and 1990 in São Paolo, Brasilia, and Rio de Janeiro.

A set of ten images are manipulated into anaglyphs that appear three-dimensional when observed though glasses with red and blue lenses.

The same ten photographs are also reproduced as pairs of slides with subtly different proportions, which trick the eye when viewed through a stereoscope.

Visionaire has created a limited edition portfolio for the images and stereoscope to accompany the launch of their latest issue, while Paddle8 are showcasing the anaglyphic images on their website alongside an interview with the architect.

    Nice photos of one of the most important and influence architects of the 20th century. In my opinion better than Le Corbusier.

    Congratulations from Barcelona

    I’m so happy I keep red and blue anaglyph glasses on my bedside table, just in case things like this crop up.
