December lecture tickets for Mia favorite Alec Soth are still available but going quickly!
A favorite with Mia visitors and staff, Minnesota photographer Alec Soth will be our special guest for the Friends Lecture on Thursday, December 12. Soth is one of the most internationally-recognized photographers working today. For Soth, photography is a liberating, invigorating, and uncensored activity, but “…a photograph is not something to keep a memory,” he clarifies. “It’s something to just speak with. It’s language.” He compares his photography to poetry rather than journalism, encouraging multiple interpretations. With tenderness and empathy, his art portrays a variety subjects— a man named Charles holding model airplanes in Vasa, Minnesota, a Paris fashion shoot, and compelling landscapes, scenes, and portraits that reveal people’s livelihoods, pastimes, hopes, concerns, and fading dreams.
