Ebb & Flow is beyond thrilled to host accomplished photographer and author, Josie Iselin, for a book signing (and our first public event!) of her beautiful new book, The Curious World of Seaweed. Join us for “a deep dive and exploration into a somewhat neglected corner of our coastal natural history. Iselin brings together the contemporary and the historical into a fabulous volume that tells the tale of sixteen iconic seaweed and kelp.” Come prepared for a renewed appreciation of our iconic Pacific Coast.

RSVP on Facebook.

Josie IselinJosie 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.
