Henri Clément

Professional photographer since 1973, Henri Clement has specialized in stereoscopic images.

"Strange and striking the relief portraits of Henri Clement. For a little you put your cupped hand on one breast, glisseriez your arm under the arm of the model, chiperiez a lifelike brush. What presence lenticular process that gives relief characters! They are almost there before you. Be surprised to reach out to touch them, to move to see hidden details. A bewitching universe created by Henri Clement. "

The system used is the lens array. It is an optical device that allows users to reach the vision of a different image depending on the angle from which you look at the network.

Each presented draw is made from forty to a hundred shots component stereoscopic sequence. Capture, which takes about six seconds is by means of a camera moving on a straight track motor. The stereoscopic base is about one meter. A device having nine housings synchronized also been developed to allow a snapshot. The shots are then finely aligned and intertwined to obtain a single file. The image is then drawn exactly at the optical receiver network format, the lens array and glued.

The relief is output from the difference of view between the two eyes, each eye sees a different image, and moving the viewer to the inside of the viewing angle of the lens array successively browse stereoscopic pairs one after the other, in a continuous succession smoothed.
The relief portraits presented here, from live models, are the fruit of a long process of development. They give a whole new dimension to the usual perception of a character in pictures, and participate in a movement that could be called the "métaréalisme".
