Local Artist Snags Award for 3D Photography Exhibit
Art comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes in different dimensions. Menomonie author and photographer David Tank was named best of show at June’s National Stereoscopic Association convention in Michigan for his 3D photo exhibit titled “Phantographic Still Lifes.” Tank’s exhibit consists of seven still-life scenes that combined 3D images with real items. When a viewer looks through 3D glasses, it becomes difficult to differentiate between the real items and those that are 3D photographs, Tank said. Tank said in a news release it was an honor to have his work be judged by other 3D artists. He said one of the biggest differences between showing his work at a 3D conference compared to other venues is he did not have to explain to viewers how 3D works because those in attendance were already knowledgeable of such artwork. Among his artwork and photography, Tank has also published two 3D books and a children’s book all of which are available at The Local Store, 250 N. Dewey St., or on Amazon.
