“During these last days of the administration, what is the point of protest, satire or any other sort of rabble-rousing? In assembling this collection of pictures Ive made over the last eight years, Im not really trying to accomplish much at all. But as President Bush once said, ‘One of the great things about books is, sometimes there are some fantastic pictures,” Alec Soth says about his self-published artist book printed on newsprint in 2008.

Alec Soth’s images are paired with Bushisms, which refers to mispronunciations, unconventional words and phrasings by George W. Bush.
