The Many Mediums of @littlebrownmushroom

For more photos and videos by Alec, follow @littlebrownmushroom on Instagram.

The photographer Alec Soth (@littlebrownmushroom), is a man of many mediums. “One of the huge upsides to photography is the way it is so easily translated into different forms,” says Alec, who lives in Minneapolis and is best known for his mysterious photographs of ordinary America. “I love being able to work for both ‘The New York Times Magazine’ and my own self-published newspaper. I’m also grateful to have a large print on a gallery wall and the same image on a smartphone. One experience doesn’t cancel out the other.”

Alec currently has a show open at the Sean Kelly Gallery (@seankellyny) in New York and the Fraenkel Gallery (@fraenkelgallery) in San Francisco. “Photography online is like streaming digital music — it is an invaluable tool to being exposed to a lot of work that will hopefully prompt one to dig deeper,” Alec says. “I think of books and prints as being like vinyl records — a way to experience the work as an object. The exhibition, finally, is like the concert — a live, one-of-a-kind event.”

The painting of flowers
next to the painting of flames,
and I remember that time, years ago,
when the psychiatrist said, “You feel too much,
you are too sensitive, take these,”

giving me a bottle of pills. I took them
to the beach, watched light become flame
on the water, and along the ragged cliffs,
small flowers like blue stars,
the world a painting
I couldn’t live in.
I opened the bottle, then put it down,
pills spilling on the sand.
Waves carried the flames
and didn’t mind the burning,
the arising from and disappearing
into the vastness. I swam,
let the waves take me,
then treaded water, looking at the sky,
a silver tray full
of the most beautiful nothing.
I swam back, the water was black,
I could sink beyond caring,
but I wanted to live,
to be there
with the beauty and the burning
and let it be too much.

Good morning friends! Tonight is the opening of the much anticipated “Crazy for Cult” show at Gallery 1988! My piece inspired by the hit movie trilogy “Back to the Future”, shows a
day at the car garage doing some maintenance on the famous DeLorean.

This would also be my last show piece for the year, looking forward to 2015! Have a great holiday guys!
