The viewing screen is as crucial as the camera for the creation of an Integram 3D Photograph. When properly placed over an Integram photo transparency the screen’s multiple lenses integrate the 2,644 exposures into a single 3D image.

Creating the viewing screen was almost as difficult as creating the camera. Each of the screen’s 2,644 lenses have a very precise dimensional relationship to one another. de Montebello needed to create a reusable mold because each Integram Photograph required its own screen. This 4-part photograph shows the reusable mold from different angles and a finished viewing screen.
