The subjects of Alec Soth’s works are the American ideals of independence, freedom, spirituality, and individuality, which the photographer expresses in scenes of daily life. The human essence always remains the central aspect of his intimate portraits; his trained eye is directed at the story behind the visual narrative—human emotions, personal destinies and longings. His exhibition Gathered Leaves at the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg will feature a comprehensive selection of 69 photographs that offer an in-depth look at the work of this Magnum photographer.
