Alec Soth's reputation as one of the leading lights of contemporary photographic practice is largely predicated on the books he has published. This unusual catalogue accompanies a touring exhibition which uses the four major bodies of work which Soth has published as books since 2004 as the structural basis for both a mid-career retrospective and an investigation of Soth's prescient understanding of the various and distinct applications of photography as a tool for storytelling across diverse media. The title of the exhibition comes from Walt Whitman's poem Song of Myself and references both the pages of his books gathered for consideration and the notion that his work is also a story about Soth himself. This catalogue is a special object, bringing together an essay by Aaron Schuman spread across 28 large format postcards, with mini facsimile versions of Soth's 4 books [3 of which are now out-of-print], all housed together in a luxurious printed and embossed clamshell box.
