Robert Seydel, author of the forthcoming Book of Ruth, (Siglo Press) and Professor of Photography at Hampshire College suffered from a heart attack on January 27. Robert was a dear friend and an amazing collage artist, critic and teacher. A hint of his prophetic writing is in the current issue of Bomb Magazine. There is a memorial service at Hampshire College, Amherst, MA on February 26, 2011. His star burned up.
