This portrait gallery contains images of people who’s contributions to 3D extend over many years. Most of the images were captured using the VX12 Deepcam which can be seen in image 7. Many thanks to stereoscopic society chairman Andrew Hurst for providing that image.

9 Jonathan Ross, a world renowned collector of all forms of 3D. Check out his Hologram Collection website, it’s a must see if you love 3D. Hopefully the Holographic section of ChannelFree will soon contain exhibits from that collection. He often exhibits holographic and other 3D art at Gallery286. Look out also for coverage of Gallery286, his home and gallery in Earls Court, in the sculpture section of ChannelFree. We soon hope to have images of sculptures by his wife, Camilla Shivarg, as well as light sculptures and other physical 3D art.
