Statement from Alec Soth on the back of print “Lee and Quintavious. Ware County, Georgia. 2014.”

“I met Lee and Quintavious at the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind. ‘We’re the same age,’ Lee said, ‘and we help each other get along. I come to this camp because of him.'”

Artist Bio

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 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.
