Alec Soth

Alec Soth's series Niagara is a sobering examination of one of America and Canada's most mythologized tourist landmarks. Photographing on both sides of the falls, Soth employs romantic and nostalgic motifs that juxtapose with a bleaker and more alienating reality that exists there. This tension, magnified by the restrained formality of a large format camera, casts Niagara Falls in a distinct light. The result is a shift away from stereotypical romanticization and toward a darker and more complex portrait of a place that is often only seen through an iconic lens.
