PRESENCE is a counter-intuitive, conceptual, and thoroughly entertaining take on the search for celebrity. Photographer Chris Buck hides his famous subjects without the use of digital manipulation in this perverse take on power portraits. The book features fifty sittings, including Robert De Niro, Günter Grass, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Chuck Close, Cindy Sherman, Russell Brand, Michael Stipe, Snoop Dogg, Nick Cave and David Lynch.
This book is being released Fall 2012 by Kehrer Verlag.
