Alec Soth’s “I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating” in San Francisco
The new exhibition explores the inner lives of the photographer’s subjects
An exhibition of Alec Soth‘s new body of work ‘I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating‘ is set to open at Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. The exhibition coincides with the release of Soth’s new book of the same title with MACK. The project investigates the possibilities and limitations of what photographs can convey about the inner lives of their subjects. Often the result of extended engagements with the people he photographs, the large-scale portraits and interiors were made in the U.S. and Europe, and often depict dancers, artists, and writers, among others. Intimate and quiet, the images reveal something otherwise unknowable about both the sitter and the photographer.
