Lightness of Being (Lenticular) was released in 2015 and features Chris Levine's most popular image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which was originally taken at Buckingham Palace in 2004. This is the first edition of this famous work and is extremely sought after.
The image was created using a high-resolution digital camera, which shot 200 images every 20 seconds as it rotated 360 degrees around The Queen.
The piece came about by chance. After each rotation, Levine’s camera would need to be reset, and he suggested the Queen relax while he did so. It was only later Levine realised he had captured this peaceful moment depicting the Queen emanating white light.
