Karl Struss (Nov. 30, 1886 - 1981): The Attic Window, Dresden, 1909 - platinum print on paper mounted on paper (Smithsonian)
Karl Struss was a photographer and an Academy Award-winning cinematographer of the 1920s through the 1950s. He was also one of the earliest pioneers of 3D films. While he mostly worked on films, he was also one of the cinematographers for the television series Broken Arrow.
He was born in New York, New York and studied photography with Clarence H. White. His first successes came selling photographs to magazines including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Harper’s Bazaar. (However, he was quick to insist that he was not doing fashion photography.)
In 1919, he moved to Los Angeles and signed on with Cecil B. DeMille as a cameraman and subsequently worked on many films. He was later also admitted to the American Society of Cinematographers.
In 1949, he began his work in “stereo cinematography”, becoming one of the first proponents of that artform. Unfortunately, he did most of his 3D work in Italy and none of his films were subsequently released in 3D in the United States. (Wiki)
