Widely known as the image that put British light artist Chris Levine on the map, Lightness of Being depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in a moment of vulnerable tranquility – captured in the blink of an eye during an official photo shoot. This hyper-real portrait was taken using a high-resolution digital camera which moved along a rail taking 200 images over eight seconds. In this twilight-toned edition, Lightness of Being (Blue), the ethereal brightness of the original image takes on a subtle elegance in a shimmering blue-silver.
