I felt that only the ability to estimate the distance between objects, using both eyes, as in reality, can give the satisfaction of a realistic experience.For this reason I have long since begun to experiment on 3D photography and eventually constructed a system of two connected cameras, functioning simultaneously and rendering the images as seen by our left and right eye respectively. The combination of the two photos taken by these cameras, gives a result similar to our brain's process. So, when in the summer of 2004, I saw the transformation that took place all around me in Athens, for the reception of the Olympic Games, my spontaneous reaction was to depict everything in "relief" through 3-D technique . ."
