Alec Soth

I was pointed in the direction of Alec's work by my project supervisor. While not all of his photography is relavent, in some pieces I can see how his use of colour saturation, contrast, a focal point, tone/mood is similar to mine.

It was noteworthy that his images are displayed on pure white as mine will be for the book. A selection of the most relevant are displayed below. They are from projects of Soth's including 'The Last Days of W' , 'NIAGARA' , 'Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (Commission)' and 'Carleton College.' All the projects have a link to mine in the way they hint at a loss, something missing or that elements of the scene are not as straightforward to read as they may initially appear.
