Chris Levine was commissioned by the Jersey Heritage Trust to create a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in 2004. The picture was to mark 800 years of allegiance to the Crown by the Island of Jersey. Levine’s ‘Lightness of Being’ was derived from the sittings for Equanimity, which depicts the monarch with her eyes closed. The camera that shot the sequence of stereo images took a while to reset itself after each pass. Meanwhile, The Queen was brightly lit, and Levine suggested that she might rest between shots. The image of ‘Lightness of Being’ was captured during those moments of rest.
