Rare Photosculpture by WILLEME

In 1860 Willème deposited his patent in Paris, for a process of photo-sculpture. The plastic properties are achieved by a special method of taking numerous silhouette views of the subject. These are then used to produce a 3-dimensional object. The artist would have used a pantograph to transfer the silhouettes to the chosen medium. François Willème presented and described his process to the French Photographic Society on 17 May 1861
