June 21, 2017: Get Uneasy with Chris Buck

photography by Chris Buck    graphic by Michael Coleman    

ASMP New England and AIGA Boston are excited to bring award-winning editorial and advertising photographer Chris Buck to Boston.


For three decades Chris Buck has been carving out a unique space in the world of celebrity portraiture, capturing its ineffability - its danger, its oddness, its warped sense of reality. Come hear Buck tell the story behind in his latest book Uneasy: Portraits 1986-2016, and his surprising career. He has great stories to tell, and he doesn't hold back.


Uneasy is the culmination of 30 years of portraiture, constructing a road map of contemporary culture. Featuring many of the most recognizable names today: Barack Obama, George Clooney, Joaquin Phoenix, Lena Dunham, Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Louis C.K., Judd Apatow, Philip Seymour Hoffman, William Shatner, Aziz Ansari, Kristen Stewart, Jay Z, Cindy Sherman, Jimmy Fallon and Donald Trump.


Door Raffle / Silent Auction:

There will be a Workbook $2,000 one year online portfolio in the silent action.  And, we will raffle off a Bob Korn print valued at $130 - 20x30 image on 24x34 paper, two $25 gift cards to Hunt’s, and a Think Tank Digital Holster 10 V2.0 valued at $49.75.


Presenter Bio:


Chris Buck was born in Toronto in July of 1964. His father worked for Kodak, so he went into the family business and became a photographer. Chris moved to New York in 1990 and established himself as a sought-after editorial and advertising photographer; his clients include Google, SAP, Old Spice, Dodge, GQ, The New Yorker and The Guardian Weekend.


Buck has won multiple awards, including being the first recipient of the Arnold Newman Portrait Prize in 2007. His first book, Presence: The Invisible Portrait (2012) was a collection of celebrity photos in which the famous sitters are present, but not visible. Kathy Ryan, Photo Director for The New York Times Magazine, called it a “crazy subversive book.”  His 30-year retrospective, Uneasy: Chris Buck Portraits 1986-2016, is set for release February 2017.


His other series work includes Chris Buck’s Chris Buck (portraits of other people sharing his full name), Gentlemen’s Club (portraits of exotic dancer’s boyfriends), and Likeness (pictures of a 10 inch 3-D photograph of himself).


He spends much of his free time with his wife Michelle and daughter Olive. He takes his martinis dry, with a twist.
