Charles Thomas “Chuck” Close is an American photographer and painter who achieved worldwide fame as a photorealist. Though severely paralyzed since 1988, he has continued to produce art. Each piece is highly sought after by collectors and museums all over the world. His latest work involves large-scale portraits made with his own fingerprints. Chuck also has ‘prosopagnosia’, a disorder that impairs his ability to recognize faces. This, according to him, explains his deep fascination with portraiture.
