Dan Weinstock presents “Finger Lakes Scenes in 3-D” on March 25

March 25 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Free

The Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes in partnership with the Geneva Historical Society will present the virtual program, “Finger Lakes Scenes in 3-D” by Dan Weinstock on Zoom on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

The program will focus on 3-D images called stereoviews. They consist of two nearly identical photographs or prints, paired to produce the illusion of a single three-dimensional image. When viewed through a stereoscope or 3-D glasses, the image becomes a single 3-D image.

This program will provide a brief overview of stereoviews as collectibles and then examine a few of the region’s stereo photographers and their prints. In order to experience the 3D effect, red/cyan glasses will be made available to participants.

Dan Weinstock is a former president of the Geneva Historical Society and has collected photos and stereoviews for many years. He has been a contributor to the National Stereoscopic Association’s publication Stereo World.
