Holography and photography are two ways of recording, on film, information about a scene we view with our eyes. The basic mechanisms by which they accomplish their purpose, and the images which result, however, are quite different. As the words holo (complete) and gram (message) connote, the hologram captures the entire message of the scene in all its visual properties, including the realism of three dimensions. The photograph, on the other hand, collapses into one plane, the plane of the print, all the scenic depth we perceive in the actual scene.
