Henry IV, Part 1: a source of inspiration

After shooting a dress rehearsal of Henry the Fourth, Part 1, for the International Shakespeare Center, I made digital prints of several photos. This play features the character Falstaff, a braggart who gives a couple of the most famous speeches in the Shakespearean canon (“What is honor? A word.”).
