THE FOLOWING PART IS THE WORK THAT BERNARDO DID ON MY REQUEST ON THE SHROUD IMAGE, THE CONVERSION FROM 2D TO 3D.
____2005 and 2006 : Creation of the 3D Master Images for a tridimensional Holograms series of the image of the Man on the “Holy Shroud of Turin”, for Dr. Petrus Soons and the Dutch Holographic Laboratory. (The Netherlands) (Website: http://www.holoprint.com) and this was a multiple camera views 3d conversion. It was achieved with my own 2d to 3d conversion process. The series contained two front body 3d images, in vertical position, two in horizontal position and two of the face. In 2007 Dr. Petrus Soons presented the first series of 2005 (Using my Stereoscopic 2d to 3d conversion series of 2005) of the Shroud of Turin in the documentary “The Fabric of Time”, produced by Grizzly Adams. (April 2007). The documentary included the first series of 2005: one of the face and two of the body (front and back).
—-August 2007: A new series of 2d to 3d conversions were done of the image of the Man on the Shroud of Turin, with improved material (Enrie photographs with Barrie Schwortz expertise) and much more sophisticated than the first series, which resulted in more 3D depth and also more details. Again, 3d material was produced to create a new series of holograms of the face and the front and the back of the body. Also, CD ROM movies of the face and the front and the back of the body were produced.
—- Since 2008 until today, Bernardo Galmarini’s photographs and stereoscopic 3d work has been published in newspapers, books, catalogs, brochures and magazines.
