Alec Soth – One Of The New Shining Lights In The World Of Fine Art Photography

Hailing from Minnesota, Alec Soth has become a darling of the global fine art market.
[photopress:61zcEje64bL._SL500_AA240_.jpg,full,alignright] But his work is much quieter than all of that. A very unassuming man, his work speaks for itself, whether it comes from the explorations of Sleeping By The Mississippi, or the very personal journey of

His love is the wandering and the making photographs of what he discovers.

In photography, there is always a tie to some technology, which should just open the visual door wider for you to walk through. Sometimes, it becomes a stumbling block when not used with a deft hand, and you start paying attention “to the man behind the curtain”.

Alec Soth has found his methods, and his photographs have soared because of them.

Using an HP 3200 printer, he (or his studio manager) has found that the process of printing museum quality prints in limited editions, has become less time consuming, and honestly, an easier process.

We met with him in NYC, during PhotoPlus Expo, for a chat about those methods and his work.

You can also see some of his work on our VIDEO SHORTS page under the MAGNUM tab. Yes, nominated in 2004, he became a member of that prestigious collective this year.
