Alec Soth: Gathered Leaves
Thu 25.8. - Fri 15.1.
American Alec Soth (b. 1969), photographer, Magnum Photo member, instagrammer and publisher, is an all-round photography professional who seeks to encounter his audience through all formats from social media to museum exhibitions. It’s no wonder that he is one of the most talked about photographers of the 2010s.
The Gathered Leaves exhibition includes series of works that brought Soth to the forefront worldwide. Sleeping by the Mississippi, Niagara, Broken Manual and Songbook, all photographed between 2004–2014, introduce audiences to poetic studies of people whom Soth has encountered in small towns, suburbs, and wilderness and national landscapes.
At a time when we are bombarded with more photographs than ever before, Soth uses his talents to gather the leaves of a disjointed reality into a single arresting collection.
