Event description

Description

For the first time in Vancouver, widely acclaimed contemporary photographer Alec Soth will give a talk discussing his development as a photographer, with a special emphasis on photobooks and storytelling. The talk will be followed by a book signing. Soth's latest publication, I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating (Mack, 2019), will be available at the Gallery bookstore.
Soth (b. 1969, Minneapolis, MN) lives in Minneapolis. In 2004, Steidl published his landmark monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, comprising landscapes and portraiture taken during Soth’s travels of the American Midwest. The success of the publication led to his photographs being featured at the Whitney and São Paulo Biennials later that year. Renowned for his poetic lyricism, his images comprise an evocative, even narrative portfolio of modern-day America. He has participated in over one hundred group and solo exhibitions over five continents and has earned several awards and accolades. Soth’s work is in major museum collections and he is a member of Magnum Photos.
Presented in collaboration with FotoFilmic. Established in 2012 and based on Bowen Island, BC, FotoFilmic is an arts organisation dedicated to supporting emerging photographic artists through exhibitions, publications, as well as seminars, public talks and master workshops.

No reservations are required. A select number of tickets are available to reserve a space in advance. To be valid, ticket holders must check-in at admissions no later than 6:30pm on Friday, July 26, or their tickets will be released on a first-come, first-serve basis.
