About Bogota Funsaver
Alec Soth’s second contribution to our One Picture Book series, as with his first, opens with a note: “In 2003, my wife Rachel and I traveled to Bogotá, Colombia to adopt our baby girl Carmen. During our two months in the city, I made the photographs that would become my book Dog Days Bogotá. Ten years later, Rachel, Carmen and our seven-year old son Gus traveled back to Bogotá for the first time. We all used disposable cameras to photograph the trip.” Limited to 500 numbered copies, Bogota Funsaver comprises 13 reproductions, and one original signed photograph by Alec Soth.
Alec Soth’s work is rooted in the American photographic tradition that Walker Evans famously termed “documentary Style.” Concerned with the mythologies and oddities that proliferate America’s disconnected communities, Soth has an instinct for the relationship between narrative and metaphor. His clarity of voice has drawn many comparisons to literature, but he believes photography to be more fragmented; “It’s more like poetry than writing a novel.”
Aside from his many critically acclaimed personal projects, selected clients also include The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, W Magazine, Vogue, GQ, Wall Street Journal Magazine.
Much of Soth’s work is tied to an interest in the photobook and in 2008, he started his own publishing company, Little Brown Mushroom.
