Solar Eclipse by Jim Leisy, Van Dyke Brown print, 2011 
As the title Solar Eclipse suggests, the cosmic observer in the photograph is actually catching a glimpse of the fleeting phenomenon with a pinhole projector. Solar Eclipse is from a series of 16 photographs titled “Amateur Physics,” which focused on breaking down complex scientific or mathematical theories with wit and beautiful imagery.
