About the Reviewer
Jonathan Ross was involved with commercial holography from 1978–1990 with his company SEE 3. He has compiled one of the most extensive collections of the art and applications of holography, (www.jrholocollection.com) and is a sucker for 3D images of all sorts. He exhibits his collection in public spaces whenever possible and stages regular holography shows, along with other forms of contemporary art, at his Gallery 286 in London, England.

About the author
After graduating in 1973 in Applied Chemistry he worked in a company with dichromated gelatin, unrelated to holography. In ’77, he was amazed to see a holographic pendant made using the very material he was researching. His life ‘changed for ever’. He subsequently worked on photopolymer materials for Ilford, which became the subject for an MPhil at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. Since ’91 he has been involved in ‘blue sky’ research at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge, UK. Jeff is the recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Saxby award for 2003
