my new favourite photographer. Alec Soth (born 1969, Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American photographer. his photography has a "cinematic feel with elements of folklore that hint at a story behind the image" (says Wikipedia). in his work i see a big William Eggleston influence (my fave, duh) with a hind of Corinne Day. his first book, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published in 2004, and his second book, Niagara, was published in 2006. Soth has photographed for The New York Times, Fortune, and Newsweek.
