"Presence" is a conceptual and ironic take on the perverse search for celebrity. The book features fifty sittings with Robert De Niro, Jay Leno, Chevy Chase, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Cindy Sherman, Russell Brand, Snoop Dogg, Nick Cave, David Lynch, and more. Only in this new series, portrait photographer Chris Buck makes his famous subjects hide from the camera--and the viewer.
Chris Buck has been a professional photographer for more than twenty years and shoots for such clients as "GQ," "Esquire," Microsoft, and IBM. He was the first recipient of the prestigious Arnold Newman Portrait Prize.
