Minnesota-based, internationally-revered photographer Alec Soth recently released his ninth book of photographs, entitled I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating. But in the summer of 2017, less than two years before the book’s release, Soth wasn’t dreaming up plans for a new series of photographs. Far from it, as it turned out. He was considering walking away from photography altogether. For an entire year, he had put away his beloved large-format camera, turned away his usual gigs with The New York Times Magazine and Vogue, and spent much of his time hanging out in a remote, dilapidated farmhouse contemplating what role art would play in his future, if any.
