Soldiers of World War I / Reconstruction. 3D Photo / Guillaume Hubert, France

17 Apr 2015 Soldiers of World War I / Reconstruction. 3D Photo / Guillaume Hubert, France

Soldiers of World War I / Reconstruction. 3D Photo / Guillaume Hubert, France

Opening: April 17, 2015

“Friedland gate” Museum, Dzerzhinsky street , 30


Inspired by the history of World War I, I decided to create a series of portraits using some special technique. The idea was to depict soldiers from all countries of the world. Firstly, I began working with the group of military reconstructors called “Scottish soldiers of Flanders”, who reconstructed the outfits of Scottish soldiers buried in the Caestre Military Cemetery (France).

Later I decided to include soldiers from other countries into the project. The main goal of my work is to enliven the history and show the contemporaries how our ancestors lived.
In order to reach some certain level of authenticity I used the lenticular printing technique. This method is not new, per se. However, the objects on photographs are shown from different angles and in different planes, and this is a novelty. Thus, each portrait consists of a number of interlaced images, which brings depth and creates the 3D effect, making the picture more detailed and the colors more intense.





Guillaume Hubert was born in Montpellier (France) in 1969, studied plastic arts at the School of Design in Versailles. He has been taking photographs since he was 18, and in 2005 started working as a professional photographer. He discovered the lenticular printing technique in 2010 and since then has taken part in a number of large format photographic exhibitions: “Carnival masks” in the Town Expo Centre of Bayeux (France), “Next Dimension” at the Photokina exhibition in Koeln (Germany), etc. Guillaume was also a participant of the group exhibition organized by the International Art Centre in Hong Kong (China) in 2012.


Guillaume uses the software of the Triaxes company (Russia) to create 3D pictures. His 25 large format pictures will be presented at the biennale along with his other works that will be displayed on a special 3D panel. There will be also demonstrated an interactive presentation prepared by the students from the 3D visualization laboratory organized by Triaxes ( in Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (
