9780847827602: In My Stairwell

The stairwell of New York photographer Mark Seliger may be unadorned, decidedly offstage, and very small, but the creativity of so many talented people jammed into one space is enormous. Each artist, dancer, and writer brings a different personality to the room, and Seliger captures that spirit in each photograph. From Paul McCartney to Susan Sarandon, from Tom Wolfe to Lou Reed, all of the participants in this project demonstrate the greatest integrity and highest creativity in their crafts. Other memorable portraits include those of Tony Hawk, Richard Serra, Bill Irwin, Laurie Anderson, and Lenny Kravitz. All 75 photographs were printed with a turn-of-the-century platinum palladium photographic process, a procedure that results in a highly detailed, rich texture. The images are printed in tritone. Fred Woodward, the prominent New York designer of Rolling Stone and such ground-breaking books as Crazy, Sexy, Cool, is the mastermind behind the book's cutting-edge design.

About the Author:

Until recently, Mark Seliger was the Chief Photographer of Rolling Stone, Us, and Men's Journal for more than ten years. Born in Amarillo, Texas, Mark Seliger now lives and works in New York for Condé Nast Publications, including GQ and Vanity Fair. His previous publications include Tattoo Nation: Portraits of Celebrity Body Art (2002), Hip Hop Immortals (2002), Lenny Kravitz (2001), Physiognomy: The Mark Seliger Photographs (1999), and Crazy, Sexy, Cool (1996).

From Booklist:

Ah, the beautiful people! Their faces and circumstances change, individually and historically, but they seem always to be with us.Today's beautiful people are performers, not aristocrats and plutocrats. They exist to be seen, and, incapable of relaxing, they are always "on." Because few are classically good-looking, they are best photographed elaborately prepared, artificially lit, and in severely controlled settings. Seliger obliges them almost completely. He shoots every one of them in the skylighted elevator shaft--"three brick walls and a crown of sun"--he uncovered when renovating his studio in Manhattan's downtown. The first two subjects are those shar-peis of rock, Jagger and Richards, guaranteeing that beauty in any normative, let alone ideal, sense is banished immediately. Each subject is expressively posed and accoutered, many are nude (fortunately, most of these thereby put on their best faces, so to speak), and if you haven't heard of some of them, you're not a New Yorker. In black and white on 11-by-14-inch pages, they look marvelous, gorgeous, fantastic. But beautiful? Ray Olson
