[view biography  Mark Seliger]

Mark Seliger is an American photographer, born in in Texas in 1959. Having moved to New York City in the middle of the 1980s, he has since then become one of the most renowned press photographers. His work is presented in famous museums and galleries all over the world.

Mark Seliger Biography

Mark Seliger became interested in photography at an early age, having won his brother’s camera in a bet. He immediately dedicated his life to photography, experimenting and working with images, trying out different perspectives and various processes to develop his own films in his dark room at home.

Seliger entered the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, and later on continued his training at the East Texas State University where he showed great interest in the history of documentary photographs.

In 1984, he moved to New York City. Three years later, he started to work for the Rolling Stone Magazine. He was soon to become the star photographer of this famous magazine and produced over 125 cover photos from 1992 to 2002. Through his photos, the life of actors and singers of the 20th century became a legend.

During his ‘’Rolling Stone years’’, Mark Seliger befriended the art director Fred Woodward. Together, they directed several music videos, among them You Belong to Me by Candy Butchers, Maria by Willie Nelson, Stillness of Heart by Lenny Kravitz and She by Elvis Costello.

Be it photography, movies or music, everyone in the photography world asks for Mark Seliger’s portraits. His pictures are on the cover of music albums by Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Santana, Sheryl Crow, Tony Bennett etc. Production companies such as Universal Pictures, MTV, Miramax or Sony hire Seliger for their most prestigious campaigns.

In 2002, Seliger quits Rolling Stone to work for the Condé Nast Group. He pursues his collaboration with magazines like Vanity Fair, GQ and the Italian edition of Vogue.

In 2006, Mark Seliger creates 401 Projects with Bret Langton. This non-profit gallery is entirely dedicated to photography. Located just next door to Seliger’s studio in Greenwich Village, this gallery displays the work of young photographers –not the most fashionable or bestselling ones, but those whose photos matter in Seliger’s opinion.

Mark Seliger currently lives in New York and is still working for Vogue and GQ.

Style

Mark Seliger is famous for his portraits. He knows how to capture moments, moods and atmospheres that make pictures unique. By using a high-end photographic printing process, the so-called platinum palladium process, he succeeds in creating large-scale, 30”x40” prints and in keeping the re-editing process at a minimum.

Mark Seliger’s photographs received many awards, among them

the Gold Medal Award of Excellence; The Society of Publication Designers, 2004,
the Silver Medal Award of Distinctive Achievement; The Society of Publication Designers, 2002,
the Gold Medal Award for the "The Sopranos", Rolling Stone; The Society of Publication Designers, 2001,
the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award, 1999
and the Photo District News Merit Awards, 2000.
