Secrets of the Sunset Strip...
...or how Hollywood snapper Mark Seliger got Drew Barrymore to lie naked, Macca to sit barefoot and Kim Kardashian to cover up with a coat of silver paint
Mark Seliger is one of the most sought-after photographers in the world. He began working for Rolling Stone in 1987 and spent nine years as the magazine’s chief photographer, taking more than 100 iconic cover shots. His distinctive images now regularly appear in Vanity Fair, GQ and Vogue. ‘I have had some challenging subjects but I’ve never really been in a position where I haven’t got something from it,’ says the 58-year-old Texan. Sometimes, if somebody is having a bad day or has a bit of an attitude, that can actually work in your favour.’ His new book showcases his most celebrated pictures and here he gives More the inside story on a few of his favourites.
‘Mark Seliger Photographs’ is published by Abrams, priced €77.
