A Village Lost & Found
Release date: 30 September, 2016
This painstaking excavation of exquisite stereo photographs, by Brian and Elena Vidal, from the dawn of photography, transports the reader back in time to the lost world of an Oxfordshire village of the 1850s. At the book's heart is a reproduction of T R Williams' 1856 series of stereo photographs Scenes In Our Village.
Using the viewer supplied with this book, the reader is absorbed profoundly into a village idyll of the early Victorian era: the subjects seem to be on the point of suddenly bursting back into life and continuing with their daily rounds.
