“As time goes by, I realize the extent to which the work is about the way I, as an individual, navigate the world out there.” —Alec Soth

Alec Soth’s 2004 book Sleeping by the Mississsippi is a landmark publication of documentary photography that is now in its fourth printing with Magnum, who also represents Soth. After taking a break from photography, Soth is now a very busy man. At the AIPAD Fair opening today in New York, the artist has curated a special exhibition titled A Room for Solace: An Exhibition of Domestic Interiors, and he is currently featured in no less than four solo exhibitions and one two-person exhibition to accompany his latest book, I Know How Furiously Your Heart is Beating, out now from Mack publishing. The exhibitions are at Weinstein Hammons, Minneapolis; Sean Kelly, New York, Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco; and Loock, Berlin; in addition to Two Rivers: Joachim Brohm/Alec Soth at NRW Forum Dusseldorf.

Filmmaker Ralph Goertz of the IKS Media Archive in Dusseldorf recently produced a short documentary with Soth, speaking with him in his studio and while shooting with his large format camera. In this trailer for the documentary, we get a glimpse of both.
