on the subject of photography...

New photography gallery 401 Projects in New York is currently showing the exhibition "In My Stairwell" platinum prints of celebrity portraits (shot in the stairwell of his loft studio) by gallery founder Mark Seliger, I quite like this shot of vaudevillian actor Bill Irwin in clown pants:

The former chief photographer of Rolling Stone, is now under contract to Condé Nast Publications, where he works for GQ & Vanity Fair, his body of work includes portraits of Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Kurt Cobain & this ultra cool shot of the Legendary Johnny Cash:

The next show starting on May 24 will be an exhibtion of the work of rock photographer Albert Watson sponsored by DKNY, I love this shot of Bowie:

401 Projects Gallery is described by Seliger as - "This is like a photographer's sanctuary."
