Can you spot the celebrity in these photos? In ‘Presence‘, a series by photographer Chris Buck, celebrities are hidden in the frames so they can’t be seen. The invisible portraits really do have famous faces somewhere in them, including Robert De Niro, Kathy Griffin, David Lynch, Jay Leno, and Michael Stipe. PetaPixel notes that Buck’s project is a counter-intuitive and conceptual take on celebrity portraits. It can be seen as a comment on the media’s typical portrayal of famous people, and the search for celebrity.

The series includes fifty portraits with subjects physically within the frame, hiding behind or under some feature in the photograph. A signed witness form verifies that each sitting took place. Click through to see a selection of Buck’s photos:
