Lightness of Being: A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with her eyes closed, by Chris Levine.
I may have seen this in London, but it really struck me when I saw it at the Danziger Gallery’s New Photographers exhibition in January. The room was mainly dedicated to the holographic portrait, but this was also displayed prominently.
I imagine most of the American visitors saw these works with an element of detachment, in the way that I can’t fully participate in the 4th of July or President’s Day. For me, though, this woman - whether I like it or not - is an embodiment of my home country, and there was something powerful about both the hologram and this image, with both the image of the monarch in full regalia, but also at rest, and with the years showing on her face.
The Guardian also has a short video featuring the photographer talking about the process, and showing some of the different angles of the source images for the hologram. Worth a look. Levine’s work features in The Queen: Art and Image, opening at the National Portrait Gallery in May after touring from Edinburgh.

 Sporting ‘anonymous’ headscarf, Queen catches the 10.45 to Kings Lynn. I love this photo, if only for the fact it looks a bit like a stamp.
