From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America is the first exhibition catalogue to feature the full spectrum of the
work of Alec Soth, one of the most interesting voices in contemporary photography, whose compelling
images of everyday America form powerful narrative vignettes. Featuring more than 100 of the artist’s
photographs made over the past 15 years, the book includes new critical essays by exhibition curator Siri
Engberg, curator and art historian Britt Salvesen and critic Barry Schwabsky, which offer context on the
artist’s working process, the photo-historical tradition behind his practice and reflections on his latest series
of works. Novelist Geoff Dyer’s “Riverrun”—a meditation on Soth’s series Sleeping by the Mississippi—and
August Kleinzahler’s poem “Sleeping It Off in Rapid City” contribute to the thoughtful exploration of this body
of work. Also included in the publication is a 48-page artist’s book by Soth titled The Loneliest Man in Missouri,
a photographic essay with short, diaristic texts capturing the banality and ennui of middle America’s
suburban fringes, with their corporate office parks, strip clubs and chain restaurants. This full-color publication
includes a complete exhibition history, bibliography and interview with the artist by Bartholomew Ryan.
