Alec Soth made quite the splash with his magnificent series Sleeping by the Mississippi. His new series Niagara avoids safe terrain - if you will - and deals with “true love, sexuality and the promise of ‘happily ever after’” (source). I don’t think this is what many people would have expected after the Mississippi series, and this is part of what makes it so interesting. The series is now featured at Digital Journalist. Also check out this beautiful feature at slate.com.
