Another real oldie. It speaks for itself. An easy subject really - but also recognisible enough for portfolio purposes.

Case Study

I was selling my work to Newspapers and magazines so this type of celebrity subject was effective in drumming up interest.

I had Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's 'Einstein on the Beach' music theatre spectacular very much in mind when I did this.

Most people know of, and recognise Einstein but - most of us have absolutley no idea of even the most fundamental aspects of his work. He's become more of an image more than a scientist.
