Queens Diamond Jubilee

The flags and bunting are out in force but what better way to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee than with this fantastic picture by Chris Levine. A picture of her Majesty, with eyes closed, would have been thought treasonable a few years back but this image shows how the monarchy have moved (ever so slightly) with the times.

During a series of 3-D photo scans, each one lasting eight seconds, the Queen decided to rest her eyes. Chris Levine took the picture and the rest is history.  It is currently on display at the Saatchi gallery as part of the excellent ‘Out of Focus’ exhibition.
