The Praxinoscope theater was invented by Emile Reynaud in 1879. This device uses the same system that Praxinoscope to animate images, a sort of zoetrope, replacing the drum slots for the mirrors inside. The difference with this Praxinoscope is the moving images are seen through a glass that reflects a latent image of a minuature stage with its scenery, in the middle of witch the image moved.
The Projection Praxinoscope is an optical toy invented by Émile Reynaud in 1880. This apparatus allows to project on a screen moving pictures. The praxinosocope projection that appears in this video is from Cinema Museum (Girona) and is one of the few specimens preserved in the world.
This video shows step by step this photographic procedure developed in 1871 by Richard Leach Maddox and improved in 1878 by Charles Harper Bennett, that introduced important improvements in the capture and development of photographic images.
The video shows the process of making a photogravure, the technology that has been most used for printing photography. The recreation is based on the original Talbot-Klic (1879) technique with some procedural variants.
