About A Pound of Pictures
A Pound of Pictures is a stream-of-consciousness celebration of the photographic medium, bringing together an entirely new collection of work by Alec Soth made between 2018 and 2021. Depicting an array of subjects — from Buddhist statues and birdwatchers to sun-seekers and busts of Abe Lincoln — Soth takes us on a winding, ruminative road trip, reflecting on the photographic desire to pin down and crystallise experience, especially as it is represented and recollected by printed images. This book includes an afterword and extended notes by Soth, as well as five randomised vernacular photographs inserted loosely in its pages.
