Swipe Design Book Launch | TOD SEELIE: Bright Nights

On Friday, November 29th, Swipe Design | Books + Objects will host photographer Tod Seelie at their store for the launch of his new book BRIGHT NIGHTS: PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANOTHER NEW YORK (9783791348551) published by Prestel Publishing. Bright-Nights

“You've never seen New York this way before." --Slate

About the Book Tod Seelie loves New York, but not the version depicted in postcards. His city is an underground haven for people at society’s edges, people who come alive at night, who make music and art and noise and mess. This startlingly beautiful collection of images captures a gritty culture that belies the city’s glamorous persona. Here are punk bands and bike parties, abandoned spaces and skeezy clubs, junk-filled lots and sketchy streets. Interspersed throughout the book are texts from Seelie’s friends and fellow artists, along with an introduction by Jeff Stark, editor of the iconic alternative events e-mail list Nonsense NYC. The photographs in the book create a love poem to the city that not only doesn’t sleep—it cavorts around at 3:00 am looking for the next adventure.

Colorful, entertaining, and slightly shocking, this is the first book from Tod Seelie, a photographer whose images “elevate mere weirdness to a more striking realm of visual intrigue.” —New York Times

About the Author TOD SEELIE has taken pictures in more than 25 countries on five continents. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and appeared in publications including the New York Times, TIME, Rolling Stone, Spin, Thrasher, Vice, Der Spiegel and Juxtapoz. Seelie displays his work on multiple websites including Sucka Pants, which he has maintained for almost a decade.
