THURSDAY, JANUARY 2OTH, 2022 – 1 PM
Josie Iselin is a fine art photographer and book author passionate about the natural world around her. Josie is intent on looking closely at the objects of our world and asking how we can learn both about and from them. Her newest book, The Curious World of Seaweed, takes a deep dive into the ocean universe of marine algae, creating a nexus where art and science converge. She holds a BA in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard and an MFA from San Francisco State University. Her writing and art focused on seaweed, 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. Through art, design and research, Iselin will delight you with her gorgeous seaweed imagery.
