Mark Seliger takes glossy photos for Rolling Stone and GQ of celebrities and has honed a knack for picking up strong personality with stark, simple photos of Kurt Cobain and Jay-Z. In his latest book Listen, out from Rizzoli New York, he focuses on people lesser known but just as textured. These photos of pierced people show body jewelry as true style, wild cultural adornment that sees the flesh as the ultimate canvas. Seliger captures the full expression of his subjects and they in turn feel completely dressed in these striking nudes.
