Photography // Friday, November 22, 2013
Over the years, we have worked with Tod Seelie on a few projects, and one of the reason we have worked with him and assigned him some open-ended projects is that we know that he sees the world differently then most.

Removing contemporary politics, this destruction illustrates how little has changed psychologically in the 1500 years since the barbarian sack of Rome. With one notable difference. Rome was destroyed by uneducated warriors. In Baghdad, the event was stage-managed for TV.” – Matthew Quick
