Francisco Afonso Chaves at MNAC, Lisbon

"THE PARADOXAL IMAGE" at Museu Nacional de Arte Contempornea do Chiaso, Lisbon.

I was delighted to have discovered the stereoscopic photographer and "Azorean naturalist" FRANCISCO AFONSO CHAVES (1857-1926) this week in Lisbon.

A wall text on "seeing landscape from afar":
