Alec Soth (1969) – American photographer of the significant achievements of individual and group exhibitions devoted to such projects as Sleeping by the Mississippi , Niagara Falls or Broken Manual.
His photographs show the community and landscape areas of American suburbs. Soth is a member of Magnum Photos and the founder of the publishing house Little Brown Mushroom.
” Alec Soth has created a photographic career out of finding chemistry with strangers . On his frequent road trips through America, he’s drawn are loners and dreamers he spots from his car , sometimes he will do several pass- bys before striking up a conversation . Often that will lead to a portrait session with his large- format 8 -by -10 view camera . ” – Hilarie M. Sheets ( Trolling for Strangers is Befriending )
