Wed, November 6 @ 7:00 pm–8:00 pm
“In-Depth Kalamazoo: Historic 3D photography for a Contemporary Audience” is a presentation by Kalamazoo-based artist and stereograph curator Colleen Woolpert. 3D photography goes back to the invention of photography itself. Learn about the fascinating history of stereoscopes and stereographs, binocular vision, and contemporary expressions of the medium. Includes hands-on viewing with antique stereoscopes and Woolpert’s patented TwinScope Viewer!
During the month of November, see early Kalamazoo in 3D and explore the origins of virtual reality. “In-Depth Kalamazoo: Our City” features never-before-exhibited 3D photos (stereographs) depicting Kalamazoo in the late 1800s from the collection of KPL’s Local History Room. A project of local artist and stereograph curator Colleen Woolpert, KPL will host the first of three “In-Depth Kalamazoo” exhibits that Woolpert will present between November 2019 and May 2020 using her patented TwinScope Viewer exhibition stereoscope.
