Alec Soth records life and landscape in the powerful photographic tradition begun in the mid 19th century and extending to the work of such photographers as Walker Evans, Robert Frank, William Eggleston, and Joel Sternfeld, who was Soth’s teacher. Through his camera lens, Soth captures the extraordinary by exposing and utilizing the vernacular of the ordinary.

Soth was born in 1969 in Minnesota and is currently based in Minneapolis. The recipient of major fellowships from the McKnight and Jerome Foundations, Soth was awarded the 2003 Santa Fe Prize for Photography. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Soth's photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney and São Paulo Biennials. Soth has also photographed for The New York Times Magazine, Fortune, LIFE and The New Yorker. His first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published in 2004, and his second, NIAGARA, was published Spring 2006. Soth is represented in New York by Gagosian Gallery.
