Chris Levine, Lightness of Being, 2004

Few images of the Queen are as mesmerising as this one. An outtake from Chris Levine’s official hologram portrait shoot of Her Majesty, commissioned by the Jersey Heritage Trust in 2004, it shows the Queen serene, her eye closed. ‘The camera that shot the sequence of stereo images took a while to reset itself after each pass,’ said Levine. ‘Meanwhile the Queen was brightly lit, and I suggested to Ma’am she might rest between shots.’ It was during these moments of rest that Levine captured Lightness of Being (2004). The sense of tranquillity that pervades the portrait stems from the artist’s interest in meditation. ‘I was very conscious of her breathing in order to capture a sense of calm in the work.’
