In Memory Of Jack Laxer

Last month Los Angeles lost a treasure with the passing of 3-D photographer Jack Laxer. Jack was a renowned architectural photographer, best known for his stereoscopic work documenting the Googie style diners and coffee shops of the 1950s. His work has been seen in numerous publications, and exhibited at such venues as the the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. and the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles. Jack was a beloved figure in the 3-D community, and a regular fixture at the LA 3-D Club’s monthly meetings.

On Sunday, July 15, we invite friends, family, and the public to attend a special tribute to Jack at the Downtown Independent theater.  We’ll share stories and memories, and the afternoon will include a rare opportunity to see Jack’s images on the big screen in 3-D, the way he intended them to be seen. A number of Jack’s photos have been compiled in a program digitized and edited by Susan Pinsky and David Starkman. The slides were scanned and color adjusted by Susan in 2010 when Jack was asked to present a show at the Getty Center entitled “Photography in 3-D: Capturing the Built Environment”.

The event is free and open to everyone.
