My Brief History...

This portrait Stephen Hawking who is regarded as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Einstein is the Author's Photograph in the soon to published "my Brief History" written by Prof Hawking about his personal life story. The portrait will be reproduced in multiple versions of the book worldwide.
I captured this image during a fun filled photo session on a sunny afternoon earlier this summer in the grounds of The Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge under the canopy of a memorial tree to Prof Hawking's lifelong friend Dennis S.Avery.
Dennis was a great philanthropist who supported good causes worldwide life, who with his wife Sally Tsui Wong-Avery, established the endowment which led to the creation of the CTC in 2007.
