A new photography exhibit at the DRKRM gallery in Glassell Park presents Southern California architecture from the 1950s and 60s in a whole new dimension - literally. The photos were taken by Jack Laxer who specialized in what’s known as "stereo photography." With the help of 3D glasses, these Kodachrome pictures leap off the wall.

KPCC's Alex Cohen met the curator of the exhibit, Al Leib, at DRKRM to find out more about the photos and the man behind them.
