Reflectance paper is a surface that contains a lattice of mirrored dimples. The paper is printed with color and the angle-dependent reflectance function for each pixel of an image captured with a light field camera such as Lytro. The image then displays differently depending on the angle of incident light in the viewing environment. The technique can be used for example to display the image of a sculpture with its direction-dependent shadow depending on the incidence angle of the light.
