With our attention on wihat is and will be an amazing installation by 2x cover artist Swoon at the Brooklyn Museum, "Submerged Motherlands," that opens Friday, April 11, we wanted to take a look back at the fantastic documentary short that Upper Playground produced for the "The Run UP" that featured a great piece on Swoon.

Tod Seelie "Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York"

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. That he has a camera is of benefit to all of us as both artists, writers, or people with interest in the cracks between popular culture and underground culture, and their meeting points. That connection is the subject of Tod's new book, "Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York."
