If you’re anything like me, you will have read more books than had hot dinners, the former was always a priority. Alec Soth (of whom I am a huge fan) is not too different. In this unqiue video he gives shares a tour of his bookcase, it’s truly original, enjoy!
Alec Soth (b. 1969) is a photographer born and based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His work is rooted in the distinctly American tradition of ‘on-the-road photography’ developed by photographers like Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Stephen Shore. Concerned with the mythologies and oddities that proliferate America’s disconnected communities, Soth has an instinct for the relationship between narrative and metaphor. His clarity of voice has drawn many comparisons to literature, but he believes photography to be more fragmented; “It’s more like poetry than writing a novel.”
Renowned for his photographs of people and his lyrical approach to photography, he has published over twenty-five books including Sleeping by the Mississippi, NIAGARA, Broken Manual, Songbook and most recently I Know How Furiously Your Heart is Beating
