Photo treasure trove

Thanks to a reader for pointing out this great find. It's a collection of photos by professional photographer Ivar Pel at the 60th birthday of Gerard 't Hooft in Vlieland.


I am going through these to see which ones El Naschie is in, and compare with this one of the Great Man with, left-to-right, Frank Wilczek, Gerard 't Hooft, and David Gross.


Done. The photos that include at least a bit of El Naschie are

  1. The photo above is clearly a photoshop of the
    group photo to which the reader gave the link, no doubt.

    OMG, faking academic titles, affiliations, references, photos, what else? :I

    It's the second one, group2a5.jpg .

    In the second one compared to the first [group1a5.jpg], Wilczek is a few mm closer to 't Hooft, and Gross' left pant cuff is slightly higher, and both correspond to the positions in the amateurish photoshop job (note, e.g., the side of Wilczek's face toward 't Hooft is chopped off with an almost vertical cut).

    Note also how the background was pieced together from the left and right hand sides of the actual photo, so like much of his fantasy world your hero MSElN has himself juxtaposed with fame, once you eliminate various elements of reality.

    (not the same anonymous who first pointed to the two photos)
