 Chuck Close for Architectural Digest.


New York City-based advertising, portrait, lifestyle, architecture and interiors photographer Michael Weschler  gets to put his focus on some of the most compelling and fascinating people. Recently, Architectural Digest asked Weschler to make a portrait of legendary artist Chuck Close at his studio in New York City. He tried not to be awestruck by his the artist's recent Obama tapestry series and an impressive wheelie, and focused primarily on capturing a glimpse of an American icon.  Just prior to Weschler's portrait of Close for Architectural Digest, "John Reuter, a mutual friend to Close and Weschler,  posted some incredible behind-the-scenes shots at the White House on his Facebook page that many of us 'liked' in the photo community," says Weschler.   Knowing that it would be difficult to top that, Weschler suggested that he wanted to portray Close differently than his striking self-portraits, and the artist obliged with a momentous wheelie image.
