Rainbow-colored portrait (bust-shot) of tennis player and black activist Arthur Ashe, wearing glasses, holding a tennis racket in front of his face; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in slight profile so that the right side of his face is more visible, and so that the racket does not block his face; as viewer moves to right, his position changes so that he is looking directly at viewer and so that the racket obscures his face; when viewer reaches far right, his left side is more visible; a large spot of emulsion damage appears in the middle of the hologram.


Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
