Photograph by Alan Richardson, Institute for Advanced Studies

Photograph by Alan Richardson. Note on back of photo: Einstein on his 75th Birthday- one of a series of shots I took in his home. As the years passed, I was the only photographer he allowed into his study. He tires quickly of posing, and when he said, "No more today," I would immediately thank him and depart. I never tried to steal just one more shot.
