Image: Buck Ellison, Untitled (Nonprofit), 2018.
In 2017, Buck Ellison recast members of his family with a group of models and actors and staged them in a photo work as if they were posing for a Christmas card. In 2018, Ellison did the same with the staff of Swiss Institute. For Untitled (Nonprofit), each full-time staff member was recast with a Hollywood double for a team portrait in an idealized gallery setting, complete with mineral water and a stack of SI publications.
