We thought we had to share with you Josie Iselin’s stunning seaweed images from her book ‘an ocean garden’. They were produced on a flatbed scanner and reveal the exquisite colour and extraordinary forms of more than two hundred specimens gathered from tidal pools along the California and Maine coasts.
Interviewed by the Smithsonian magazine Josie says ’Seaweed is extraordinarily beautiful, profoundly interesting and important, and so few people know this.’
She also points out the fact that ‘Some kelps can grow as much as 60 feet in a single season. They can grow very fast, up to ten inches a day!’ – which is what makes them so sustainable as a food.
