Charles Darwin at the Natural History Museum

Charles Darwin at the Natural History Museum

A slightly surreal looking image of Charles Darwin at the Natural History Museum, London.
The occasion was a major exhibition to mark the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth.
I like the way that the floor in the foreground merges with the walls, making the doorway quite hard to read as a door – actually making it look more like a picture frame, especially with the giant Darwin (a huge wall-mounted display) on the wall. The brain takes a moment or two to work out what’s going on as the signals are confusing.
