Another episode of celebrity photographer Mark Seliger's show CAPTURE is up on YouTube and this one is well worth a look too.
On the show (embedded below), Seliger talks to legendary rock photographer Bob Gruen and actor Kevin Bacon about some of Gruen's most famous images.
Particularly interesting is a discussion of Gruen's iconic photo of John Lennon wearing his New York City t-shirt. The portrait became a symbol of Lennon's strong connections to the city in the aftermath of his murder in front of his home at The Dakota building in Manhattan in 1980.
"He said that if he lived in the time of the Romans he'd live in Rome," Gruen says on the show. "But he lived in the '70s so he lived in New York because he felt that was the center of the art world."
CAPTURE is set in Seliger's Manhattan studio and features interviews with photographers and celebrities who also share a passion for photography.
