The Lord Mayor Project

The Lord Mayor of LeicesterAs part of the IOCT Research programme into Three-dimensional imaging, Professor Martin Richardson (chair in Modern Holography) invited the Lord Mayor to sit for a formal 3-dimensional portrait

Prof Richardson assembled a team of four from the Department Of Imaging & Communication Design, consisting of cameraman Stuart Wade, lighting technician Jez Collingwood and student James Malbon, together with Prof Richardson who directed and designed the shoot. During the day a series of High Definition 3-dimensional movies were made resulting in a lenticular 3-dimensional portrait, detailed here in 2-dimensions.

The portrait will be positioned alongside the traditional representations of former Majors of Leicester in the Town Hall lobby later this year.
