In his more than 30 years behind the camera, Mark Seliger has taken photos of everyone from the Dalai Lama and Barack Obama to Fleetwood Mac and Kurt Cobain. Seliger spent 10 years as the chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine and another decade shooting for Vanity Fair, GQ and other Conde Nast magazines. But Seliger's work isn't just focused on world leaders, celebrities, comedians and rockstars. He's also documented real-life people as well — from first 9/11 responders on Ground Zero to the transgender community in New York City. His latest book, "Mark Seliger Photographs," includes a wide range of shots from his career and many of those images can be seen through Jan. 19 at Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. He recently spoke with The Frame's John Horn.
