Stereo Atlases as Hybrid Knowledge
This paper examines the nature of knowledge generated by the use of stereo images in scientific atlases. Taking both photography and drawing to be stereo imaging methods in the sciences, it contends that it is not only photography we should pay attention to. Market factors in the production of stereo atlases, the complicit introspection required of stereo atlas users, and the control exerted by the authors of stereo images combined to create a unique sort of hybrid knowledge.
