Rainbow-colored portrait (bust-shot) of photographer Simon Marsden; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in profile so that his right side is visible; as viewer moves to right, he turns and faces the viewer while holding a camera up to his eye as though taking a picture; as viewer continues moving to far right, he puts the camera back down and turns so that only his left side is visible in profile.
