ALEC SOTH - I KNOW HOW FURIOUSLY YOUR HEART IS BEATING
Soth’s new photography book is a quieter affair. This publication comes after the Minnesota-born image-maker took a year off from photographing, following a “full-on mystical experience”, as he explains in the book in a conversation with the author Hanya Yanagihara: “The only way to describe it is to say that I suddenly understood that everything is connected... This changed everything.” Where before there had been a distance in his practice, Soth returned to the medium seeking a new kind of engagement with his subjects; describing his previous approach as “more aggressive” and “like a hunter on the prowl”, there is a lightness behind his new work.
