Alec Soth - A Pound of Pictures - Special Edition - 2022
A Pound of Pictures is a stream-of-consciousness celebration of the photographic medium, bringing together an entirely new collection of work by Alec Soth made between 2018 and 2021. Depicting a sprawling array of subjects — from Buddhist statues and birdwatchers to sun-seekers and busts of Abe Lincoln — this book reflects on the photographic desire to pin down and crystallise experience, especially as it is represented and recollected by printed images. Throughout this eclectic sequence are the recurring presences of iconography, of souvenirs and mementos, and of the image-makers that surround us day to day. Forming a winding, ruminative road trip, Soth’s photographs are followed by his own notes and reflections in an extended afterword.
The special edition comprises a signed and numbered copy of the first printing of the book; a signed and numbered inkjet print; and 5 original unique vernacular prints selected by Soth from his personal collection and contained in an envelope, all housed in a printed cardboard box held together with coloured rubberbands.
Medium: Inkjet Print and Book edition with 5 original unique vernacular prints in custom box wrapped in rubber bands.
