The End of Likeness

The first picture was posted on my Instagram on April 15th, 2015, and the final one over four and a half months later, in late August. My first estimate of 75 photos and videos of the ten inch figurine of myself almost doubled, to 141 posts, one per day. The Likeness project had a fine run, but all things come to an end, and my figurine’s time was adventurous and well documented.

My favorites from the series will have a permanent home on my website and a limited edition 6×8 inch book will soon be available. (The run is limited to 50 pieces, costs $38.00 and is now available for ordering via my Paypal account associated with the email address chris@chrisbuck.com. Each book will be signed and numbered by me).

Likeness enjoyed some good press, including my first coverage by the Time Magazine photo blog, Lightbox. Wired.com also did an excellent piece. As well as Metro and Petapixel.

Bottom Image: The kind folks at Doob 3D made me a new figurine, in the original pose, after my months of abuse of the first one. Shown side by side here one can see the scars and wear of being a Chris Buck figurine.
