Rainbow-colored portrait (bust-shot) of conservative commentator William F. Buckley, wearing a shirt and tie; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in profile so that his left side is visible; as viewer moves to right, his position rotates so that he is directly facing the viewer; by the time the viewer reaches the right side, he is shown is profile so that his right side is more visible; as viewer moves from left to right, he breaks into a smile and raises his eyebrows quizically.

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.
