Alec Soth’s “I know how furiously your heart is beating” was created following a period of photographic inactivity. Soth rethought his creative process, stopped travelling and stayed aware from his camera for a year. He decided to focus his photography on the medium’s primary elements, on its strength of observation and its power to connect.
