For five years Chris Buck made a series of portraits of the famous in which they weren’t actually visible (they are hiding in the shots). The book PRESENCE: The Invisible Portrait was published this fall by Kehrer Verlag and is available from Amazon and the photographer’s website . Mr. Buck will be speaking about the book and the stories behind it at the Aperture Foundation tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM. He might even tell us where a few of the people are hiding…

Chris Buck made news this summer with his Michele Bachmann Newsweek cover but he’s been kicking around celebrities and other dogs for over twenty years. We’re excited that he’ll be speaking at PDN’s Photo Plus Expo on Friday October 28th at 1:30 PM, BUCK NAKED: The Secrets Behind Master Photographer Chris Buck.
Mr. Buck begin his photography career 23 years ago, but you probably didn’t notice him until fairly recently, which, he believes, is one of the central keys to his success. In this entertaining session he’ll take us back to those crucial early years, where his unorthodox decisions led him to the success and creative freedom he enjoys today. Buck keeps no professional secrets as he takes you through his colorful career.
And, even though he swears that he rarely bad-mouths clients on his new blog, he is proud of it nevertheless.
