Henrik Olesen / Some Illustrations to the Life of Alan Turing (Apple), 2008


In 1952, English mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist Alan Turing was arrested during a police investigation about a robbery in his own home. Turing’s sexuality was revealed in police’s process, submitting him to arrest for gross indecency. He was then prosecuted for being a homosexual, choosing chemical castration over prison. The process proved more than harrowing for the genius, and in June of 1954, Turing committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple. Snow White had always been his favorite fairy tale.
