Two Men in Full... Hair Apparent... Good Tidings...

TWO MEN IN FULL: Retail might be slow, but Ralph Lauren’s West Broadway store was doing a brisk business of selling Mark Seliger’s latest coffee-table tome, “The Music Book,” at a packed party last Wednesday night. The photographer was there to inscribe pages for fans, as was the author of his foreword, Tom Wolfe.

“We met riding motorcycles,” said Wolfe, who was clad in his trademark white suit. “But only the beginner riders wear leather jackets,” he said, pointing out Seliger’s own black leather one. But, in all seriousness, he attested, “Mark does so much research for each of his photographs that his pictures are worth 100,000 words.”

As for the pictures in question, they show musicians from the past 20 years Seliger has been shooting, from Kurt Cobain to Justin Timberlake. And even though it was Seliger’s book party, he didn’t take a break from snapping, even asking a bystander to take a group shot of him with Wolfe and David Lauren on his digital camera.
