The Optical Devices Workshop: Replicas

The Optical Devices Workshop of the Fine Arts School of Altea has been working since 2009, run by the professors José Vicente Martín and Iván Albalate, with the collaboration of the professor José Luis Maravall and the pre-doctoral fellow Hugo García (2008-2012).

Our research has focused on pre-photographic optical devices, creating replicas, variations and new inventions like the “diorama viewer with selective focus”.

Here we make public and available all the plans of our designs.
