Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am wondering whether there are any high resolution photos of Alexander Grothendieck available online. I did a search on Google Images, but most of the results are low quality and/or low resolution. Here is a nice one, but I am wondering if there are any other good ones out there. Thanks!

(P.S. Feel free to close this question if you think it's inappropriate... Obviously this is not really a mathematical question... I'm not so familiar with what the standards of appropriateness are here. Also, I guess this question should be community wiki but I don't see any option anywhere to make it such.)

Have you tried e-mailing these guys to ask if they have high resolution photos? –  J. M. Dec 24 '10 at 10:36
Asking for G's pictures is not exactly algebraic geometry :P –  Mariano Suárez-Alvarez Dec 24 '10 at 12:25
Where else would you ask this sort of question? –  Gunnar Magnusson Dec 24 '10 at 17:17
@Asaf: I'm afraid I disagree with you. This site (along with MO) is the only one I know where a question like this has some chance of being answered. To me, that makes the question appropriate for MSE, at least until we have an actual alternative option to offer the OP. –  Gunnar Magnusson Dec 24 '10 at 23:28
@Gunnar: The fact that the best place to get an answer for "Looking for a car that was previously owned by a neurologist" is a neurology board doesn't mean it has any place being there. :-) –  Asaf Karagila Dec 25 '10 at 7:56
