Talk & Book Signing

Artist Talk: Chris Buck

Tuesday, December 4

6:30 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street New York, NY


Join Chris Buck for an artist talk about his first book PRESENCE: The Invisible Portrait. PRESENCE brings a counterintuitive and conceptual take on the desire to behold fame. A successful editorial portrait photographer, Buck ingeniously set up these shots so that, even without digital manipulation, no human figure can be seen. From the super-famous (Robert De Niro, Jay Leno, Snoop Dogg) to the legendary (Günter Grass, Chuck Close, Archbishop Desmond Tutu) to the notorious (Nick Cave, David Lynch, Sarah Silverman), the range of subjects and collaborators blurs the line between the indulgence of pop culture and the obliqueness of art photography. A book signing will follow the discussion.
