See Celebrity Selfies by David Lynch, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier & Other Tastemakers

For the past five years, portrait photographer Jonas Unger has been asking his subjects to take their own damn photos. Specifically, he hands the reins over to celebrity subjects (actors, designers, musicians) in the hopes that they'll capture a moment when they're at ease, and therefore a shot that imparts intimacy—no direction, no high concept, no influence from a third party.

Click through his "Selfportraits" series to see David Lynch, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, Gérard Depardieu, Joan As Police Woman (Joan Wasser), and others. If you're in Paris, you can view the photos in Unger's show solo at the Deroulion Gallery starting April 23.
