The classic nudes on this page were taken on the domain of Jules Richard (1848-1930)

In 1891, Jules Richard, a manufacturar of instruments for measuring, develloped his interest in stereo photography for the amateur photographer. In that same year he invented the
Vérascope, a stereo camera which popularity growned all over the world. In 1893, Richard took a patent on his first Vérascope model. Most of the depicted views are, most likely, taken with a vérascope. The Cabaret Women seen on the other page are almost all marked with his camera type between the two stereo pairs.

Jules Richard was passionated by women. He build his own "folie", and baptised it
"
The Atrium". The interior and garden of his Atrium where the location for the images depicted on this page. A lot of young women were immortalized through stereo photographs on this domaine. In this case on 45 x 107mm glass stereo slides.

Full Nudity
in this time was certainly not generally accepted but the influence of Greek mythology in these photographs was his method to stop critiques.

In addition to stereo camera's, Richard also designed several stereo viewers, hand-held types or more the elaborate table and column stereoscopes & cabinet's (left). Best known is his Jules Richard "
TAXIPHOTE" viewer, available for three different sizes of glass stereo pairs. A special type of the taxiphote, the TAXIPHOTE OPTICAL MODEL, has a complex mechanical mechanism for placing the individual stereo slides into the field of view and returning them to the bakelite tray, holding 25 different images.
