Seattle 100: Portrait of a City is the culmination of a
two-year personal project by renowned photographer, filmmaker, and
social artist Chase Jarvis. Both a creative project and an insightful
ethnography, Seattle 100 shares—via more than 300
stunning black-and-white portraits and biographies of each
subject—a curated collection of leading artists, musicians,
writers, scientists, restaurateurs, DJs, developers, activists,
entrepreneurs, filmmakers, and more, all of whom are defining and
driving culture in Seattle. Some faces you will know, other names you
may have heard in passing, and others will have been unknown to you
until now.
With this book, Jarvis has created a snapshot of a
city’s culture through its people. And it’s inclusive.
Descriptive rather than prescriptive. It’s a 100, not an
exclusive the 100, and it invites each of us to survey our own
surroundings, our lives, our friends—and those not yet our
friends—that make up the place we live, whether that’s
Seattle or anywhere else. Individually, the images and words here
introduce you to 100 engaging and important people. Collectively, this
portrait of a city tells a fascinating, interwoven story about a unique
and vibrant place.
Beyond the photos and commentary by
Jarvis, there are pithy musings by a select handful of subjects on the
topics of art, food, community, region, culture, and film. In addition,
many of the subjects share their favorite things, places, and doings in
and around the Seattle that they have explored, discovered, and
rediscovered time and again.

Reviews for Seattle 100: Portrait of a City (Voices That Matter):


Mar 16, 2011

Energizing compilation of photographs and short blurbs on influential Seattleites who are defining and driving culture in their artistic work. They include chefs, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, comedians, designers, architects, writers and others who create the nexus of the city's creative, civic and intellectual life. And perhaps the best part, I now have a list of some new places and people to check out!

I'm am bubbling over with Seattle pride! Jaw dropping portraits of inspiring locals, adorned with short bios and favorite haunts, paints a rich depiction of the city's style, community and values.
