Tod spent the past four summers building and traveling with a crew of artists and performers on rafts made out of junk on the Mississippi and Hudson rivers, as well as the Adriatic Sea. These incarnations of the Miss Rockaway Armada and the Swimming Cities blurred the line between art, life and adventure while aiming to inspire people along the way.
Tod Seelie has photographed in over fifteen countries on five different continents. His work has appeared in publications such as The New York Times, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin,Marie Claire, Jane, Men’s Journal, Thrasher, Vice, i-D, Paper, XXL, Art Forum, Art In America, Parade Magazine, and Adbusters among others.
His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Sydney, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Cleveland, Miami and at Mass MoCA. His work has also appeared in various photography books, such as The Vice Photo Book, Street World, Backyard Shakedown, Hijacked, and Various Photographs curated by Tim Barber.
