Josie Iselin is a San Francisco photographer, writer and book designer. She has created seven books over the past ten years and is currently focused on understanding the seaweeds she encounters on her regular beach walks or reef excursions. Her 2014 book An Ocean Garden: The Secret Life of Seaweed combines portraits of marine algae with lyrical passages about the life history of these seaweeds. Her new work pushes beyond the straightforward portraits to energetic abstracts using algal elements. She has also created a series of seaweed curtains allowing light to come through the seaweeds in the gallery as it might below the ocean surface. Her work is on view at www.josieiselin.com.
