Einstein's brain – David White, 2007

30 October 2008

The shots of Einstein’s brain were taken in Mike Blow’s stonemasonry workshop in Bristol, 2007. I had been told that Mike had carved an exact replica of Einstein’s brain using original medical photographs as guidance.

He had also used marble from the same block as Michelangelo had used to carve David. Mike created the brain as a showcase of his work and as a part of his entry into a prestigious academy. I decided to shoot the brain from all sides and then combine the images into one, very un P.C. Not how I would usually photograph something, but it seemed to suit the subject. I like to experiment.

David White has worked all over, for all sorts, and since 2000 has been concentrating mainly on foreign features and reportage for magazines. He has picked up an award or two, including a world press award. He was made a contributing editor to Marie Claire magazine in a photographic capacity in 2006. Lately he has been concentrating on digital narratives and multimedia, working with a radio 4 sound man.

Photographer since 1989, EPUK member since 2001.
