Fahey/Klein Gallery has a special knack for presenting compelling work by renowned editorial and fashion photographers, culling exhibitions from both their marquee careers and personal explorations. For example, Mark Seliger's decades of iconic portraiture has elevated the game from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair, GQ, Elle and Voguein depictions of titans in music, art, fashion, business and politics: Johnny Cash, Barack Obama, Laurie Anderson, Muhammad Ali, Bob Dylan, Matthew Barney, Cindy Sherman and the Dalai Lama. The classically cool style of Seliger's black-and-white photographs and the sophisticated, refined color palette of his glossies capture both the persona and the personality of his subjects. His newest book, which features an interview conducted by Judd Apatow, accompanies the exhibition, and there's a gallery talk and book signing with KCRW's Jason Bentley on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2-4 p.m.
