In Alec Soth’s book for this series, entitled Sheep, compelling portraits of seemingly unrelated subjects converge into a personal revelation. Alec Soth was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1969. He is the recipient of several major fellowships from the McKnight and Jerome Foundations and was awarded the 2003 Santa Fe Prize for Photography. His work is represented in major public and private collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Soth’s photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney and São Paulo Biennials. His first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published by Steidl in 2004. His follow up, Niagara, was also published by Steidl and released in 2006. Soth is an associate photographer with Magnum Photos.
