Hundreds of holograms for sale! NEW: dichromate plates, Boy George portrait, film,..
This collection features holograms produced before 2000. Most of the collection dates from the mid 1980s to late 1990s.
Many of the holograms in the collection are of the highest-quality and some are historically significant. Others are just fun to look at.
The holograms are grouped according to the material on which they were recorded: silver-halide glass plate, silver-halide film, photopolymer film, dichromate, and embossed films/foils.
Some of the holograms pictured may be owned and/or stored by collectors associated with Vintage Holograms.
In addition to the older holograms, there are a small number of holographic artworks included on this website that were produced over the last 20 years.
There is also a corresponding collection of holo-documentation spanning 1985 - 2000 (mostly product-related) that is available for reference or sale.
I acquired my own collection of display holograms while employed at the world's leading hologram art and giftware distribution businesses (most notably Holos Gallery, Reconnaissance, and AH Prismatic) where I dealt directly with holographers and their production facilities and resold their artworks and holo-products to shops, galleries, and private collectors throughout the world.
My career also included time as an editor / subject-matter-specialist for Ross Books (publisher of the Holography MarketPlace, Shoebox Holography, and Holography Handbook) and Holography News. I also served on the Board of Directors of the Laser Arts Society for Education and Research (publisher of L.A.S.E.R. News).
Throughout these years, I was uniquely positioned to interact with an international group of renowned artists, scientists and businesspersons involved in the field. Being based in the San Francisco Bay area, a hotbed of holographic innovation, I was especially close to the community of local holographers, several of whom are represented on this website.
Since 1985, I have also had the opportunity to make, exhibit and sell my own holographic artworks, most recently in 2020.
