Alec Soth's Mini Education

🌱 2022-09-02

A peek into his process

You want a mini education in Photography, duck into his YouTube channel. It's amazing that someone self taught like me can have access to so much knowledge usually buried behind walls of academia.

Some of my favourite works of his that I keep revisiting everytime I am stuck and need to find my way of the forests of despair - songbook, broken manual[1], niagara and sleeping by the mississippi.

A hidden gem from Alec Soth's work - Summer Nights on the Dollar Tree

This work and Soth's interest in Robert Adams opened up a wonderful world of photography for me.
