Artsuite - Alec Soth - Rebecca - 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.

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.

Artsuite - Ben Alper - Untitled (Metal and Shadow) - Terrain Vague is an examination of space – both physical and psychic. Taken from the term coined by Catalan architect and historian Ignasi de Sola-Morales, terrain vague sites are those that foreground the process of construction and deconstruction and underscore the ambiguous transition from one state of “being” to another.  As a result, these spaces evoke a strong sense of being in between histories, function and time.
