Experience Bennett's Stereoscopic Views

Almost all of Bennett’s landscape photography was devoted to creating stereoscopic views. To create a stereo view, Bennett created two images with slightly different perspectives. Once placed in a stereoscopic viewer, the images create the illusion of seeing in three dimensions. By 1872, Bennett offered over 200 different stereo views of scenic Wisconsin. These included landscapes of the Dells, Devil’s Lake, and the rock formations in Adams and Juneau Counties. These stereo views were sold to the public through a series of dealers, agents, and the Montgomery Ward catalog.
