Magnum Photos’ Photographer Alec Soth (USA) will give a lecture at Odesa Photo Days

During the lecture “Space Between Us,” Alec Soth will tell about the evolution of his own creativity on the example of a series of works. Special attention will be paid to the portrait, the specifics of working with people and ways of attracting attention to the image.
“Earlier I believed that storytelling was  the most powerful expressive way and even was disappointed with the limited possibilities of the narrative in photography. And now I’m not even sure that it worries me. Most of all, I’m only interested in the concentration of attention “- photographer explains his approach.
Alec Soth  continues the American tradition of road photography in his own way , initiated by Robert F. Frank and Stephen Shor.
