Photographer Alec Soth studies the habits and rituals of ordinary Americans, finding moments of self-absorption and vulnerability that are specific to the people he photographs, yet somehow common to human experience. Taking cues from the Depression-era documentary projects of the 1930s, Soth set out to create a state-by-state record of American life in the early twenty-first century. Photographed over the course of a 2013 road trip, Colorado Dispatch presents the core of Soth’s work from the Centennial State. These photographs of ordinary citizens, familiar landscapes and puzzling details of local culture offer an unromanticized, yet affectionate, view of the land and its people.
