His time working in communities from Harlem to Coney Island has resulted in seven books and over 80 one-person exhibitions that reveal his personal style and commitment to building human connections with photography.

Photographer Alec Soth on Serendipity, Instagram & His Time in Colorado

Minnesota photographer Alec Soth’s pictures bring to light the quirkiness and humanity of people he encounters and the places where they live. From 2012–2014, Soth embarked on a series of state-by-state road trips to make a portrait of present-day America. His journey through each state that he visited was printed in a “dispatch” format that calls to mind a small town newspaper or travel guide. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Alec Soth

Friday, June 5, 2015 - 7:00pm8:00pm.

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 ambitious Depression-era documentary projects of the 1930s, Soth set out to create a state-by-state record of American life in the early 21st century. Photographed over the course of a 2013 road trip, Colorado Dispatch presents the core of Soth’s work from the Centennial State. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Michael Collins

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

British photographer Michael Collins draws upon the descriptive tradition of the medium to create monumental, color works that are exacting in their presentation. With subject matter that includes industrial structures, London cityscapes, and views on the Hoo Peninsula, Collins employs the camera’s potential for accuracy and ability to capture more detail than the eye can see to encourage slow looking—an act he considers essential to understanding photography.

Photography & Vision: The Influence of Joyce and Ted Strauss

Jun 8, 2014–Feb 4, 2015

Joyce and Ted Strauss transformed the museum’s photography collection through their involvement as patrons, collectors, curators, and passionate advocates for the medium. As collectors, Joyce and Ted cast a wide net that encompassed early masterworks as well as experimental photographs by emerging artists. Even as they focused on contemporary art, they continued to acquire important twentieth century photographs with a strong historic or conceptual relationship to more recent work. More
