Visionaire is a multi-format album of fashion and art produced in exclusive numbered limited editions. Since its inception in the Spring of 1991, Visionaire has offered a forum for works by both famous and emerging artists from around the world as well as personalities, fashion designers, art directors, and image-makers. Artists work in collaboration with Visionaire to produce their personal interpretations on a theme, and are given unparalleled freedom to push Visionaire's original formats.
Some years ago, an antique stereoscope was presented at one of Visionaire's weekly brainstorm sessions, inspiring a maelstrom of ideas among the magazine's editors. When the opportunity to focus an issue on Rio de Janeiro came along, Visionaire realized that stereoscopy provided the perfect format for the theme. A stereoscope allows the viewer to look at a slide made up of a simultaneous double-image of the same picture, creating a 3-D illusion of depth. In the nineteenth century, stereoscopes provided a primary source of imagery and news from faraway lands, and here, Visionaire 62: Rio takes a decidedly analogue approach to achieve the same mesmerizing effect, with a series of images by artists that interpret the city of Rio de Janeiro for 3-D viewing.
Among the contributors are Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima photographed by the artist Richard Phillips; artist Marilyn Minter photographing supermodel Izabel Goulart; filmmaker Cary Fukunaga choreographing Capoeira; artist Marco Brambilla's collages of Rio; Maurizio Cattelan and Lea T; a Tony Oursler installation photographed by Vicente de Paulo; Jason Schmidt's portraits of Vik Miniz, Adriana Verajao and Eli Sudbrack; Solve Sundsbø with Brazilian parrots; Russian performance artist Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich on Ipanema Beach; and Brazilian photographer Gabriel Mendes.
The issue comes with a stereoscope designed by Visionaire in collaboration with the product design company Aruliden, which is packaged together with the slides inside a lenticular case. This numbered, limited edition 3D lenticular case is designed by two of Brazil's most famous artists: Fernando and Humberto Campana (the Campana Brothers).
