About the Speaker
Christina Seely is interested in expedition-based work that finds its home in the conversation between the photographic image and the complexities of our contemporary relationship with the natural world. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is featured in many public and private collections including: The Museum of Contemporary Photography, The West Collection and The Walker Art Center. She has been an Artist in Residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts, a fellow at the MacDowell Colony and a recipient of a year long Public Arts Commission from the city of San Francisco. She received a BA from Carleton College (1998), an MFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design (2003), and currently teaches in the Photography, Interdisciplinary and Graduate programs at California College of the Arts in the San Francisco Bay Area.
