Alec Soth - I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating⁣⁣
A lot of portraiture photography comes from the photographers ego. They want this particular shot and they’re going to get it. This often leads to many forgetting that photography only ever takes. It is only a one way transaction. And in Alec Soth’s new book, ‘I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating’, he considers a different approach to portraiture. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In this new series of work, each photograph has been crafted so sensitively, so aware that his own presence intrudes the sitter, he’s often photographing them from afar. He creates a soft and intimate look at his sitters, allowing them and himself to just co-exist. Where he once pushed for the photo he wanted, this time, it’s more to do with catching even just a glimpse of the person in front of him. Because in the end, portraiture photography isn’t going to capture someones' soul/essence, it’s only ever going to capture the external appearance of someone.⁣⁣
