ASX.TV: Alec Soth – “Alec Soth with Andrei Codrescu at the Walker Center” (2010)

 

Photographer Alec Soths lyric documentation of life along the Mississippi leaves his audience feeling as though they have just paged through a strange yet beautiful dream. Of the book Sleeping by the Mississippi, writer/NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu says, [He has] the decency (or affection) to disturb none of his subjects, through he disturbed me, a viewer, plenty. From their respective posts at either end of the waterway, Minneapolis-based Soth and New Orleansbased Codrescu come together for an illustrated conversation on the narratives found along the banks of the Mississippi and other stories of America’s Great River Road. The evening concludes with a presentation of Soths current pictorial investigation of Niagara Falls.
