2019 is the 100th Anniversary of the Stereoscopic Society of America

2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Stereoscopic Society of America (SSA). For 100 years folios have crisscrossed the United States and the globe in a continual chain of sharing. Stereoviews/cards have a long history of creativity, of offering glimpses into other lives and landscapes. They have conveyed messages of social and political import. They have shaped and mirrored our concepts of beauty. The power contained within their simplicity is often overlooked.

A 100th birthday party to celebrate a century’s long tradition will be observed at the 2019 National Stereoscopic Association Convention being held in in Akron, Ohio, July 30 - August 5. Member or not, sign up, bring five or more cards (yours or from your collection) to swap over libation, dinner and conversation.

According to 2019 NSA 3D-Con Co-Chair & Registrar, Barb Gauche, "Last year each of us brought handcrafted, recently purchased or experimental cards to pass around. You will go home with five cards swapped for the ones you brought!"

If you have any questions or need more information, please let Barb know as soon as possible.

What is the 3D-Con?
The National Stereoscopic Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1974, whose goals are to promote the study, collection and use of stereo photography it has over 1,000 members. 3D-con is traditionally the name of the NSA annual convention, held somewhere different every year in the summertime.

What happens at a convention?
The convention has programming for the collector as well as the photographer. Among the highlights are the trade show, the stereo theatre, workshops, tours, and auction, and Special Interest Meetings meetings. In addition, we hold slide and print contests and showings of stereo (3-D) photography.
