Local photographer chases waterfalls; Surviving TLC members fail to respond
I was pretty stoked last week to visit photographer Alec Soth's Minneapolis studio and preview some stuff from his forthcoming book, a meditation on fading love made up of pictures taken around Niagara Falls. Most striking were some bleak yet pretty exterior shots of the area's newlywed-geared motels, and a few florescent-bright portraits of couples in the buff and in hard-to-determine states of endearment. Open about his influences, Soth also had on display his portrait of master color photographer William Eggleston, famous for his vibrant, large-format prints of average people and mundane things. --Dylan Hicks
