Portrait of Peter with Lens
Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram

Red self-portrait of Peter Nicholson holding up a clear, round magnifying lens in his left hand at eye level; depending on viewer's angle, his left eye becomes magnified behind the lens; spooky effect, as only the head and hand are visible; excellent horizontal parallax.
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.
