Alec Soth Renews His Love

Alec Soth

Anytime we do something for very long, we hit the point where we just plain get tired. Our working life becomes too familiar, too routine, too grooved. Stale. A stained urinal.

Alec Soth, the photographer, talks about that in this short interview. It’s this unwillingness to give it up that leads one to find that renewal switch, that way to re-approach what we do so that it’s fresh and exhilarating again.

It happens to everyone eventually, no matter what we do. Part of Picasso’s genius was the way he kept reinventing himself and his art so that he never lost his dedication and persistence.

Thanks for talking about it, Alec.

From Soth's latest book, Broken Manual.
