by Alec Soth
Alec Soth's artistic process as told by the legendary photographer himself in his Minnesota studio
Leading contemporary American photographer Alec Soth (born 1969) appears before the camera rather than behind it in the latest film from documentary filmmaker Ralph Goertz (director of Hans-Peter Feldmann: Ohne Worte, 2017; Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties, 2016; Anthony Cragg: Parts of the World, 2016).
In his large-format portraits of the quotidian pursuits of Middle America, Soth depicts his subjects with a compelling frankness, often capturing them in their own homes or workplaces. In addition to his career in photography, Soth is the founder of Little Brown Mushroom, an imprint created in 2008 with the goal of experimenting with new forms of visual storytelling through publication.
Goertz captures Soth with a similar intimacy at home in his studio in St Paul, Minnesota, where the artist delves into a discussion of his work and creative process.
