The Curious World Of Seaweed

Pressestimmen 'A mesmerizing swim through a liminal world.'--Barbara Kiser, Nature'A remarkable mixture of photos and writing.... An important work well done.'--Fabien Cousteau, ocean explorer, documentary filmmaker, and grandson of Jacques Cousteau'Who knew seaweed portraiture could probe the deepest mysteries of existence? Josie Iselin's wonderful new book explores a world just below the surface. One wonder is that seaweed performs such a vital role in the ecosystem, literally helping power life on Earth. Another wonder is its shape-shifting colors and crazy symmetries, which Iselin's singular photography pops to life. Her text puts seaweed in a historical framework full of surprising stories. The result is an adventure through art, science, and pure pleasure.'--Mary Ellen Hannibal, author of Citizen Scientist Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Josie Iselin is author of eight books that focus on those forms in nature we find at hand--in particular, at the beach. She holds a BA in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard and an MFA from San Francisco State University. For over twenty years Josie has used her flatbed scanner and computer to generate imagery. She is still captivated by the fluidity with which this technique allows her to render and design with three-dimensional objects. Her writing and art focused on seaweeds, kelp, and sea otter put her on the forefront of ocean activism, collaborating with scientists and groups working to preserve the kelp forests of our Pacific Coast. As a fine artist, Josie exhibits large-scale prints at select galleries and museums, and she has designed a line of luxury scarves and shower curtains. She hopes that celebrating the ordinary wonders we find at the beach will bring thoughtfulness and stewardship to this extraordinary place of discovery. Visit her website at www.josieiselin.com.
