Evolving from a series of road trips along the Mississippi River, Alec Soths Sleeping by the Mississippi captures Americas iconic yet oft-neglected third coast. Soths richly descriptive, large format color photographs describe an eclectic mix of individuals, landscapes, and interiors. Sensuous in detail and raw in subject, his book elicits a consistent mood of loneliness, longing and reverie. In the books forty-six ruthlessly edited pictures, writes Anne Wilkes Tucker, Soth alludes to illness, procreation, race, crime, learning, art, music, death, religion, redemption, politics, and cheap sex The coherence of the project places Soths book exactly within the tradition of Walker Evans American Photographs and Robert Franks The Americans. Like Franks classic book, Sleeping by the Mississippi merges a documentary style with a poetic sensibility. The Mississippi is less the subject of the book than its organizing structure. Not bound by a rigid concept or ideology, the series is created out of a quintessentially American spirit of wanderlust. This is the third print run and third new cover of a book which has become one of the most highly collected and widely acclaimed photo-books of recent times.

Created over four years (2006-2010), Alec Soth's newest book represents a significant departure from his three previous Steidl publications. Entitled Broken Manual, Soth investigates the places in which people retreat to escape civilization. Soth photographs monks, survivalists, hermits and runaways, but this isn't a conventional documentary book on life "off the grid." Instead, working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, the authors have created an underground instruction manual for those looking to escape their lives.

Previously published in 1959, Frank's most famous and influential photography book contained a series of deceptively simple photos that he took on a trip through America in 1955 and 1956. These pictures of everyday people still speak to us today, 40 years and several generations later.

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.
