A long, friendly conversation between the American artist Alec Soth and the Italian curator and critic Francesco Zanot. Analyzing his most famous photographs as well as others that have nev - er been published or are virtually unknown, Soth reflects upon his career as a photographer. Each picture gives rise to a chapter of its own, an original thought or reflection. Soths images are shuffled together here to form new sequences: tracing the threads of memories, addressing cul - tural issues and references, and thus creating unforeseen and unforesee - able connections. Storytelling, use of colour and black and white, staged and candid approaches and personal issues are just some of the topics discussed in the book, resulting in a combination of images and words that constitutes a deep analysis of Soths work as well as a manual on the reading of photography itself.
