About The Space Between Us
Alec Soth’s first photobook published in China to accompany his first solo exhibition “The Space Between Us” in China at Shanghai Center of Photography, 2020. Includes 46 photographs from across his body of work, alongside five essays, The Moment Behind the Moment by Liu Heung Shing, Storyteller, Alec Soth and Alec Soth’s Multiple Identities & Space-time Moments by Zhang Wenxin, Photographer Alec Soth: Taking a Meditative Approach Towards Photography by Shi Hantao, Forks in the Road-Alec Soth’s Journey Along the Road to Here by Karen Smith.
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.”
In conclusion, 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.
