Welcome to 3-D Legends!

Our goal is to 

share information, history, and images for posterity. 

  • Why are some images unforgettable?

  • Why do some stereo legacies make such an impact on our current world of stereo photography?

  • A wise person once said tradition takes a long time to 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,  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 left us. 

10 Seton Rochwite admiriing his new came

Seton Rochwite designed the Stereo Realist Camera, the red button Realist viewer, the Kindar and Contura stereo cameras and more. Ray Zone was a prolific writer, historian, 3-D comic book creator and important leader in the field. Seeing his accomplishments is inspiring and impressive. He influenced many lives to follow. Each person included in 3-D Legends left their mark in various dimensional ways.
