Alec Soth: Birth of an Exhibit


Photographer Alec Soth made a name for himself shooting large format portraits with an 8×10 camera; from black and white scenes in Minneapolis bars to homemade cabins and communes along the Mississippi river. Soth prepares for the first survey of his work at the Walker Art Center. From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America features photos and recollections from those who try to escape society only to realize there is no such thing as true isolation. People still need connection; nowhere is that more evident than in Soth’s photos.
