Archive of slides by Ross Terry
NOTE: All photographs require a certain amount of exposure to light. These images were taken under constantly-moving illumination with people in motion. One or two shots benefited from strobes or flashbulbs, but Mr. Terry’s slides are historical artifacts from a unique time and are presented with only a few digital adjustments.
Jerry Abrams Headlights — wide angle views:
The screens spanned half the central Coliseum arena and were over thirty feet high.
(See the black and white photo below for reference.)
Some images were also used on the page Cosmic Music — Numenor, Window on the West (Coast) with enhanced color saturation to reproduce the density of color as seen at contemporary light shows.
