Einstein is arguably one of the greatest scientists that have ever lived. He had Asperger’s syndrome a form of Autism which I believe is what helped him in achieving his scientific excellence. His ability to think deeply about a problem and to always ask why. He also had the ability to see the world through tiny details, zooming in on theoretical experiments in his mind.
it is so important that we never stop questioning things, we never cease to ask why …
Many people never understood him during his time, he was seen as eccentric .
I feel this portrait portrays an honest view. Leaning in towards the paper as if he is peering into your soul. He hand is positioned in a thoughtful pose. The black background is symbolic of space time, the way the science eluded him for many years, he is illuminated because it is he who was finally able to shed light on the way our universe works.
