Alec Soth

We’re eager to see the newest work from this Minneapolis photographer since his Sleeping by the Mississippi portraits sent his career into orbit. Soth’s vividness, like the doubletake we do to see our surroundings more clearly, often makes his human subjects appear to have been captured in the "happy place" of their imaginations. A boy in military garb rises from a bed of golden flowers; a young woman stands on a fog-blanketed prairie, alone but for a ghostly contingent of sheep, who float toward her from the mists. The selection includes beautiful strangers lost in private reveries, as well as artists and writers immersed in their work. 2400 Third Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-870-3131; www.artsmia.org
