Photo Gallery: Alec Soth’s America

An internationally exhibited artist, Magnum photographer, and author of several monographs, Alec Soth has an uncanny eye and intuitive sensibility for documenting people and places on film. Shooting mainly with a large-format camera, he has journeyed down the Mississippi, up the Niagara, and into the heartland in pursuit of everyday subject matter. Referring to himself as a wanderer, Soth is likely to turn up anywhere an assignment and his curiosity take him. The subject of a current survey show of his American photographs from nearly the past two decades, the wandering artist — who’s also an insightful blogger — puts his creative soul on the line and comes out looking noble.

From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America, which is accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue, is on view at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis through January 2.
