International Center of Photography

$5,000 to catalogue and conserve work by the photographer, organized by center curator Edward Earle. Originally from Los Angeles, Seidner spent much of his career in Paris as a fashion and fine art photographer and frequently contributed to magazines that include Italian Vogue, Harper’s and Queens, and Bomb. His fine artwork is primarily portraits of contemporay artists as well as those based on historical paintings, while his more abstract work explores the interplay of volume and shape inspired by the chance-based procedures of John Cage.
