About the NYSS

The New York Stereoscopic Society was founded in 1997 to promote the art and practice of 3D imaging. Quarterly meetings held at the American Museum of Natural History give photographers, collectors, historians, and general enthusiasts an opportunity to learn more about creating and understanding 3D images. Postal mailings and email reminders keep members informed of the agenda and give notice of other venues for enjoying 3D in the New York area.

Meetings provide a place to see and discuss the work being done by fellow New Yorkers, as well as a forum for guest speakers. Most meetings feature polarized projection of a 3D slide show. Members are occasionally invited to 3D film screenings and exhibitions of related material.

All 3D techniques are germane to the discussion: stereoscopic photography in all formats and sizes, lenticular and barrier prints, polarized printing and projection, Pulfrich video, anaglyph printing, interlaced computer images, historical publishing, filmmaking, and professional applications in medicine, sports and museology are topics that have been covered in past meetings or are planned for the future.

Member Salons offer the opportunity to present samplings of personal works-in-progress that might not fit in the context of a formal presentation. Meetings and email announcements spotlight current uses of 3D imaging in popular media.

The New York Stereoscopic Society attracts some of the most thoughtful and creative people active in the field. If you make 3D images or simply enjoy the magic, you are encouraged to join our growing organization.
