About the Exhibition

This is the first solo exhibition of works by Alec Soth (b. 1969), who leads the world of contemporary photography in the US, to be held in Japan. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, he plans elaborate projects involving continuous travel. His unique works, which, while carrying on the tradition of documentary style, are full of poetic tranquility, have received international acclaim. An exhibition of the same title ranging from his early works to his latest and composed of five best-known series treating America as the theme is currently touring the world. However, here, the connection between image and concept is explored through a selection of works chosen exclusively for Japan.
