In the 19th century, stereo photographs were publicly available for mass consumption. They were a “passive” way for people to acquire knowledge and entertain in areas like science, travel, humour, fiction and even erotic.
Due to the demand, photographers explored all kind of topics, even taking pictures of what they personally thought represented some ethnic groups. They fuelled “stereotypes” along the way, helping establish and continue with those clichés.
People read and listened to descriptions in English and Spanish, left by previous participants.
After reading and/or listening to the descriptions, participants observed the image described through the use of a stereo-viewer. Then, they were asked to leave their own description of the image shown.
