Alec Soth in (and on his work for) W Magazine


General Photography

I never thought I’d ever buy an issue of W magazine, but then I once bought one of “Vanity Fair” (for the articles - to use that old excuse). As you might have probably heard, the most recent issue of W contains a spread shot by Alec Soth, and you should really buy the magazine for those pages. The photography is simply exquisite. On his blog, Alec just posted answers to some of the questions about the work - an excellent example of how a blog can transform the interaction between a photographer and photo enthusiasts, or - probably more precisely - how a photographer, happy to interact with photo enthusiasts, can contribute to making the medium even more popular through his blog.
