With Gathered Leaves, FOMU (Photo Museum) brings four series by the renowned Magnum photographer Alec Soth (US, °1969) to Belgium.
Sleeping by the Mississippi (2004), Niagara (2006), Broken Manual (2010) and Songbook (2014) are all pivotal works in an impressive career. Soth’s practice is defined by a lyrical documentary approach and a penchant for the photo book.
Alec Soth lives in Minnesota and is an artist, photojournalist, blogger, publisher, Instagrammer and educator. His work is based on a fascination for the vastness of the American land, much like that of Robert Frank, Stephen Shore and Jack Kerouac.
