Guest Speaker Josie Iselin is the photographer, author and designer of many books exploring Maine’s coastal universe. Her newest book, The Curious World of Seaweed (Heyday Books, August 2019), is an ambitious combination of essays and historical as well as contemporary imagery that explores the algal world just beyond the beach, according to Herring Gut, in a news release.
Iselin holds a BA in visual and environmental studies from Harvard and an MFA from San Francisco State University. For over twenty-five years she has used her flatbed scanner and computer for generating imagery.
Iselin exhibits large-scale fine art prints at select galleries and museums, advocates for ocean health through education and speaks widely on the confluence of art and science.
The Curious World of Seaweed book and notecards are available at Sherman's Maine Coast Book Shop, in Damariscotta.
