Vik Muniz’s Jackie (Pictures of Diamonds), 2005, portrays Jackie Kennedy Onassis shining with vitality. The photograph is fashioned from more than 3,000 loose, precious diamonds originally supplied by a

diamond trade collector and patron of the artist.

Muniz’s use of three-dimensional materials challenges the boundaries of dimensionality by flattening the objects into a two-dimensional photographic portrait. The resulting portrait of Jackie radiates with the poise, grace and spirit of its iconic subject.  30dc417c-a12a-4af9-81d5-903994ee1d15_160
