Alec Soth drew the attention of art world with his first book, Sleeping by the Mississippi, published by Steidl in 2004. His inclusion in the 2004 Whitney Biennial accelerated his growing reputation, and an invitation to join Magnum Photos followed shortly thereafter. Most recently, Soth had his first major museum retrospective – ‘From Here to There’ – at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in 2010-11, which was accompanied by a conceptually intricate catalogue of the same name (Hatje Cantz, 2010). Soth is also a publisher, and has utilized his imprint, Little Brown Mushroom, to produce small editions of highly personal books and magazines. His own new book, Broken Manual, published by Steidl in 2011, was voted ‘Best Book’ at the Kassel Photobook Festival 2011, and also resulted in a documentary film about him, aptly entitled Somewhere to Disappear.
