The highly acclaimed contemporary photographer presents his private and evocative nudes, landscapes, and close-up still lifes.

Listen is in a sense a memento mori, which follows in the tradition of many photographers (Weston, Stieglitz) and artists (C├ęzanne) who, at a certain age, focus on the nude, landscapes, and still lifes. It highlights Mark Seliger's personal reflections on seeing and on the passage of time.

Best known for his portraits of celebrities and musicians, Listen is a compilation of works from Seliger's private collection that captures the essence of light and shadow, and whose photographs speak to us metaphorically.

The book includes more than ninety tritones, each printed with a turn-of-the-century platinum palladium photographic process, a process that results in a highly detailed, rich texture. Many of the photographs were made especially for this book and will be published for the first time.
