If you could ask photographer Annie Leibovitz anything in the world, what would it be? Perhaps one of the ten
questions that she gets asked most frequently. The legendary photographer, best known for her celebrity portraiture,
started out as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone magazine in 1970.
Mark Seliger made a name for himself in the nineties with his now iconic portraiture work for Rolling Stone magazine.
From that memorable shot of the nude Red Hot Chili Peppers to one of the last portraits of Kurt Cobain, Seliger quickly
cemented his status as one of the leading portrait photographers of his time. The photographer has since shot a diverse
array of fashion work for Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, and Details.
Mr. Roversi, you have taken nude pictures of many of the most beautiful girls in the world. How do you convince them
to take their clothes off?It was never a big problem because they are not girls working in a place where it’s unusual to
be nude, like an office. It’s not so complicated because we have a confidence between us. Some guests said no, of course.
Some said no because, “My boyfriend doesn’t want me to,” or “I’m too shy.”
In the catalogue of the exhibition “A Different Vision on Fashion Photography” (on show from this month until

her marked by age.
