Famous Japanese photographer T. Enami was known as a prolific street photographer and was an honored alumni of National Geographic Magazine. He is best known for his countless stereoscopic photos of daily life in 19th century Japan. His stereoscopic photos captured what life was like in Japan between 1895 and 1910.

Stereoscopic photos or stereograms consist of two photographs that are almost identical and placed side by side. When viewed using a stereoscope, the photos appear three-dimensional.

Okinawa Soba turned Enami’s famous stereograms into GIF’s to show their 3D effect.


You can view some of the GIFs below. The original stereograms are also available on Okinawa Soba’s Flickr page.
