BRIGHT NIGHTS: Book Signing and Presentation

Tod Seelie loves New York, but not the version depicted on postcards. This startlingly beautiful collection of images captures a gritty culture that belies the city’s glamorous persona. Interspersed throughout the book are texts from fellow artists, including an introduction by Jeff Stark, artist in the current Mills Gallery exhibition, “About, With & For.”

Tod Seelie has taken pictures in more than 25 countries on five continents. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries around the world and appeared in publications including the New York Times, Rolling Stone, TIME, Spin, Thrasher, Vice, Der Spiegel and Juxtapoz.
