The book Redwood Saw by Richard Rothman is a photographic narrative comprising landscapes, seascapes, portraits, and nudes shot in and around the small coastal town of Crescent City, California. “Redwood Saw is a book about the human loss of innocence, the worldly loss of wildness, and the consequential loss of freedom and hope that attend these conditions and that mark our times,” the photographer says. Richard Rothman will deliver a lecture about the book, followed by a book signing, on Wednesday 7th March at the School of the International Center of Photography (1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street).
