Alec Soth: Gathered Leaves (signed)

200,00

Alec Soth’s reputation as one of the leading lights of contemporary photographic practice is largely predicated on the books he has published. This unusual catalogue accompanies a touring exhibition which uses the four major bodies of work which Soth has published as books since 2004 as the structural basis for both a mid-career retrospective and an investigation of Soth’s prescient understanding of the various and distinct applications of photography as a tool for storytelling across diverse media. The title of the exhibition comes from Walt Whitman’s poem Song of Myself [1855] and references both the pages of his books gathered for consideration and the notion that his work is also a story about Soth himself.

This catalogue is a special object, bringing together an essay by Aaron Schuman spread across 29 large format postcards, with mini facsimile versions of Soth’s 4 books, all housed together in a luxurious printed and embossed clamshell box.

Four mini facsimile books: Sleeping by the Mississippi [113 mm x 108 mm] Niagara [109 mm x 128 mm] Broken Manual [86 mm x 112 mm] Songbook [113 mm x 108 mm]
