Alec Soth on His Work and Photography

Alec Soth with Francesco Zanot: Ping Pong Conversations (Contrasto, October 2013) “is a long, friendly conversation” between Minneapolis-based photographer Alec Soth and the Italian curator and critic Francesco Zanot. “Analyzing his most famous photographs as well as others that have been published or are virtually unknown, Soth reflects upon his career as a photographer. Each picture gives rise to a charter of its own, an original thought or reflection,” the publisher said in a statement about the book. Soth and Zanot discuss the use of color versus black-and-white photographs, staged versus candid photographs, and personal and political issues in conversations that “constitute both a complex examination of Alec Soth’s work and a manual on the reading of photography itself.”
