Dan Plummer: In Depth

November 25th 2022 through January 28th 2023

 I’ve been fascinated with 3-D imagery since I was a kid looking through a GAF View Master, so creating this set of pictures – some whimsical and some more somber – has been a special project for me”

- Dan Plummer

 Historic City Hall Hours  Tuesdays through Saturdays:

10:00 am to 6:00 pm

Dan Plummer’s contribution to the “In Depth” theme is a series of stereoscopic 3-D images made mainly in Southwest Louisiana.  Pairs of images captured by two side-by-side cameras come to life when viewed through stereoscopic lenses or red/blue glasses.  The subject matter comprises Dan’s interpretations of natural and man-altered landscapes, local architecture, culture, and more.

Dan is a Lake Charles resident and amateur photographer who likes to shoot pictures of the landscapes and wildlife in Southwest Louisiana or wherever he happens to be.  He took up photography more seriously after retiring from the chemical industry in 2016.  He is a member and President of Gallery by the Lake in Lake Charles and a member of the Praxis Photo Arts Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Other members of Gallery by the Lake will be exhibiting art under their own interpretations of the “In Depth” theme

 Historic City Hall Hours  Tuesdays through Saturdays:

This year’s call for entries received over 290 mages from 61 entrants in 23 states, including entries from several local photographers.  The top fifty images were judged and selected by the editorial staff of BWD Magazine, a popular publication for birdwatchers.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the Best In Show and top three images.  In addition to the physical exhibition, an online version can be viewed here once the exhibition opens.


The project and Gallery by the Lake Inc. are supported by a grant from the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury as administered by the Arts and Humanities Council of SWLA.
