Artist’s talk & discussion: Steven Seidenberg & Carolyn White
Passages Bookshop is thrilled to present photographs from Berlin and Japan by San Francisco artist and poet Steven Seidenberg.
Seidenberg’s work scrutinizes and celebrates overlooked features of the vernacular urban environment. In extraordinarily detailed large-format digital prints, Seidenberg combines aesthetic rigor and technical finesse with archaeological, philosophical, and poetic concerns.
Join us for the Portland launch of the first book devoted to Seidenberg’s photographs, PIPEVALVE: BERLIN, published by Lodima Press, which will be available at a prepublication discount for the duration of the exhibition.
