Alec Soth
September 16, Friday
Magnum Photos: Meeting with Photographers of the Legendary Agency19:00

Limited seating available, prior registration at is required

Alec Soth is an American photographer known for his "large-scale American projects" featuring the American Midwest. His photography has a cinematic feel with elements of folklore that hint at a story behind the image. The New York Times art critic Hilarie M. Sheets wrote that he has made a "photographic career out of finding chemistry with strangers" and takes images of "loners and dreamers". His work tends to focus on the "off-beat, hauntingly banal images of modern America" according to The Guardian art critic Hannah Booth. His work has been compared to photographers such as Walker Evans and Stephen Shore.

Responsible for numerous photographs exhibited in the finest museums around the world, Alec Soth will relate his ‘Great Journey’, in which, at the age of 20, he undertook a five-year voyage along the Mississippi River, which culminated in his first book Sleeping by the Mississippi (2004).
