PRESENCE: The Invisible Portrait
Hardcover, Kehrer Verlag, 2012
This is a collection of celebrity portraits. Each is titled with the sitter's name as the subjects are physically with the frame; hiding behind or under some feature in the photograph. In the monograph a signed witness form is displayed across from each of the 50 plates, verifying that each sitting took place.
Presence enjoyed a lot of press attention, including write ups in New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, Nowness, The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, Politiken, and The National Post.
