Roy ter Maat is a stereo photography enthusiast from Amsterdam in The Netherlands. In addition to collecting old stereographs, he also takes stereo photographs himself, using a variety of cameras (listed after the jump), posting on Flickr under the name of Stereomania. His topics are broad ranging, from urban architecture to travel to cars. His stereo photos from the Kasbah of Telouet in the south of Morocco are simply breathtaking. I urge you to go check them out, but of course our focus here is on cars and Roy’s Flickr photostream has hundreds of stereo shots of the European hot rod and custom scene, what ter Maat calls “Kustom Kulture”. If you’re a regular reader here, you know we have an appreciation for the unusual and I think the topic of European fans of American muscle cars and hot rods fits that description (though Roy shoots European vintage and custom cars too). Going forward, Roy will be contributing to Cars In Depth when time allows. In the meantime, though, he’s given us permission to publish his photos here so I’ve picked a few of his shots to give you a taste of his work and posted them in a gallery. After checking them out, please visit Stereomania’s Flickr stream.
From Roy’s Flickr profile:
I take stereo photos with the following cameras:
– Twin Panasonic Lumix FX 500.
– Fuji Real 3D W1
– Kodak stereo with film (only a couple)
– Loreo lens in a cap (some)
I also collect old stereoviews like Keystone, Underwood, View Master, True-vue, Lestrade and Bruguiere.
