Rainbow-colored portrait (bust shot) of Dr. Dennis Gabor (regarded as the inventor of holography) in glasses, suit and tie, holding a museum catalog at chest level; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in profile so that his right side is visible, staring down at the catalog; as viewer moves toward center, he raises his eyes as his body pivots so that he is facing the viewer directly; when viewer reaches right side, he is shown in profile so that his left side is more visible.

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.
