The Fan Gallery currently consists of more than 200 color 5x7 snapshots, mounted in 8x10 frames. The pictures are individual photos, not group shots, except for the "Worldcon Chairs" groupings and some "couple shots." Typically the pictures are displayed on pegboard, using pegboard hooks and binder clips.
Some of the people in the Fan Gallery Contents list have a little propellor beanie next to their names, indicating that there's a small version of their photo online. As we get photos scanned in and uploaded, and as new photos are added to the collections, you'll see more of these - check back again in a month.
These are some of the qualifications that might apply to the collection. This list is approximate -- we don't have photos of everyone in each category, and some people belong in the Fan Gallery for reasons not explained here. It's not an exact science, okay? If you would like to suggest people we ought to include, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it under consideration.
Two members of the SCIFI Board of Directors, Chaz Boston Baden and Christian B. McGuire, take care of the Fan Gallery in our spare time. We can both be reached via e-mail at email@example.com.
The Fan Gallery was created in 1997 and first exhibited at Loscon in that year. Since then it has been shown at Worldcon (1998, 2000, 2001), NASFiC (1999), and Loscon. The original collection of photos were taken by Stan Burns, David Dyer-Bennet, Mark Olson, and Bruce Pelz, with additional photos contributed by Eve Ackerman, Robbie Bourget, Esther Cole, Marjii Ellers, John D. Rickett, Dave Rike, Joyce Scrivner, and one or two other unidentified photographers. The Fan Gallery was maintained by Bruce Pelz from its inception until mid-2001.
