Actor Thomas Haden Church and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Ed Keating join Mark Seliger to talk about how they got their starts, the work that is most meaningful to them. The three men discuss their experiences of 9/11 and their work in the days following. Finally, they reach into the fishbowl to ask each other questions about photography, including, “what’s the biggest problem with camera phones?”
He exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. His work mixes Art and Act, talks about commitment, freedom, identity and limit.
After he found a camera in the Paris subway, he did a tour of European Street Art, tracking the people who communicate messages via the walls. Then, he started to work on the vertical limits, watching the people and the passage of life from the forbidden undergrounds and roofs of Paris.
In 2006, he achieved Portrait of a Generation, portraits of the suburban “thugs” that he posted, in huge formats, in the bourgeois districts of Paris. This illegal project became “official” when the Paris City Hall wrapped its building with JR’s photos.

Untitled Stories by Sergej Vutuc

“I capture moments which are stories penetrating my eye via the view finder. With these I am travelling
through everyday life and the universe and with their help I communicate with my environment. Sometimes I find answers to personal questions, sometimes I am screaming at the world.”

In the 21st century he traded the guitar for the camera. Since then his works have been shown in galleries and streets in various countries in Europa and America. His photo are published in several internation art and skateboard magazines. “No Skateboading Permitted” is Sergej’s book.
