establish, but a momentary decision to end.
Stereo culture, heritage,
tradition and foundation have been
established by many inspired, creative, inventive people whose names we
remember, but we know little about them.
Whilst they are no longer
with us, 3-DLegends.com
is a place where we want to remember them. Some of us have been lucky
enough to have met these people, others are just names from the past.
Together we will share a bit of the 3-D contributions they
Seton Rochwite designed the Stereo Realist
Camera, the red
button Realist viewer, the Kindar stereo camera and more. Henry Erskine
was the Photographic
Society of America Stereo Division Equipment & Supplies
who supplied hundreds of stereo photographers with desired cameras,
viewers, projectors, mounts and needed supplies for many years, while
also being an outstanding stereographer himself.
Lambert was one of the early 1950's trick & multi-
exposure stereo photographers.
Along with Tommy
Thomas he broke every
rule he could, while creating images that astounded and amazed
peers. They taught, they inspired, they encouraged us to pursue even
more of this fascinating interest.
Wing gave the stereo
world so much, from his
hyperstereos, taken while flying commercially or on small planes, to his
comprehensive book "Stereoscopes: The First 100
the many varieties of stereoscopes invented and constructed
His book shares with us a cornucopia of 2-D & 3-D
photos of rare
stereoscopes, patent drawings, engravings, and early advertisements.
Paul was famous for
his frank opinions, his exquisite macro
images of nature, his "cha cha" single camera stereo shots, and his
extensive knowledge of the field of stereography.

This is a dream come true to create a heritage
memories of people who have influenced MY life, and maybe yours, will
live on with images of them, and by them, plus a little personal
history, when available. When I started collecting other peoples
around 1978, I never thought I'd be able to share them with other
enthusiasts around the world. What a world! What a
wonderful 3-D world!
