Using a large-format 8x10 camera, Alec Soth captures offbeat, intimate images of American life. He first gained recognition with his series “Sleeping by the Mississippi” (2004), lush, painterly color prints of landscapes and portraits shot over five years on car trips along the Mississippi River. Other subjects include Niagara Falls' honeymoon and tourism communities (NIAGARA, 2006) and the country's exhaustion under two terms of George W. Bush (The Last Days of W., 2008). In the tradition of road photography established by Walker Evans, Robert Frank, William Eggleston, and Stephen Shore, Soth documents suburban and rural communities throughout the Midwest and Southern United States.
