I love this image of the Queen by Chris Levine, entitled ‘Lightness of Being’. It’s so calm, and it’s beautifully processed.
I think it’s so cool that even in her 80’s, she chose to be involved in this innovative project and I love that she approved an image with her eyes closed.
A short, interesting video about the shoot can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7BiFB5NHDk&feature=youtu.be
This and other portraits of the Queen can be seen at ‘The Queen: Art and Image’ touring exhibition: http://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/exhibitions/2012/the-queen-art-and-image.php
