This week, the Seattle Review of Books is sponsored by Lois Farfel Stark — the award-winning filmmaker behind more than forty documentaries and, now, the author of The Telling Image. Stark's new book is an exploration of how humans experience the world through shape: a web, a ladder, a helix. Her vast experience makes a tour de force out of what could easily have been a quiet coffee table book.
We look at the world in a sleepy way, especially through the lens of social media, where images slide past in a blur. Stark's book is like caffeine for the visual center of your brain. Stop by our sponsorship page for a glimpse at the rich images she's captured while traveling the world, and her take on them. Then go for a long walk. Keep your eyes open. See what you see.
Sponsors like Lois Farfel Stark make the Seattle Review of Books possible. Did you know you could sponsor us, as well? If you have a book, event, or opportunity you’d like to get in front of our readers, reserve your dates now.
