I’m incredibly excited to get my copy of the catalog for the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Portfolio Showcase Vol 6! This is a beautiful book. Thank you so much to Hamidah Glasgow for your hard work on this, and to Melissa DeWitt for choosing my work! Soon you can buy it at c4fap.org
And we’re off!! @crusade4art beginning an epic road trip to Portland! Oregon coast here we come! (at San Francisco)
Watch out Photolucida- new work is on the way. Excited to show this in Portland this month. (at Stanley House)
Very excited to be speaking at SSU in a couple of weeks! Will be great to catch up with Jeremias Paul and check out his photo program there. (at Southern Utah University)
So I found all these when moving… Should be fun to see what’s on them. Lots of Sony Mavica shots I’m sure. 100kb digital photos! It was amazing in 1999, I swear.
The Crusader at work- @jenniferschwartz giving away our work, making life more beautiful for the lucky passersby. Six new friends and collectors walked away with a photo of mine tonight! (at Julia Street art walk)
A great night with my senior photo students at @looseluggage ‘s new LA loft. I have to say, I am so proud of all my alumni - not just their work, but the beautiful network and community that they’ve formed. I’m spoiled to know and work with so many gifted and gracious young artists. Thanks again Adam for giving back and sharing your work tonight!
Alec Soth: Dispatches from a Ramble
Alec Soth is a celebrated American photographer born in and based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Soth’s Tumblrs include his publishing company Little Brown Mushroom and his latest project, The LBM Dispatch. In partnership with writer and journalist Brad Zellar, Soth is producing the LBM Dispatch in both newspaper and digital formats. Soth describes the Dispatch as an “irregularly published newspaper” of their “North American ramblings.”
For the LBM Dispatch, you’ve gone to Ohio and upstate New York and produced two newspapers.
When Brad and I were working in Minnesota on this idea, it wasn’t called the Dispatch. It was simply this idea of two people working together: one as a writer one as a photographer in this kind of old-fashioned way.
