The coffee table book Mark Seligers Photographs is a stunning retrospective that celebrates the work of one of the most in-demand portrait photographers of our time.
Mark Seliger's extraordinary portfolio is 30 years in the making. In 1987 Seliger began shooting small assignments for Rolling Stone; in 1992 he became their chief photographer, a position he held for 15 years. During his time with the magazine, he photographed more than 125 covers. He has captured some of the most iconic images of the most famous and influential faces of our time, including Kurt Cobain, Nelson Mandela, Leonardo DiCaprio, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Springsteen, David Byrne, Matthew Barney, Jennifer Lawrence, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay-Z, Misty Copeland, Amy Schumer and Paul McCartney.
Mark Seliger Photographs features his best-known portrait photographs, as well as never-before-seen outtakes and selected standouts from his landscape and personal work, including portraits of Holocaust survivors and transgender men and women on Christopher Street, and documentary photography of Cuba. The photographs are accompanied by an interview between Mark Seliger and Judd Apatow, in which Seliger shares the stories behind some of his most iconic works: Kurt Cobain showing up for a Rolling Stone shoot in a T-shirt that read "Corporate Magazines Still Suck"; a road trip with Brad Pitt; and navigating a room full of Tibetan monks while photographing His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In addition, the book includes an essay by Lyle Lovett. Mark Seliger Photographs is the ultimate celebration of one of the most in-demand portrait photographers.
