Where to Go and What to See
Finally, I can't escape the feeling that it's become passé to recommend Alec Soth (sorry Alec). But in going back over his Dog Days, Bogotá series (on view at the Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis) I've decided I just don't care. The work--created in his adopted daughter's hometown partially as a way to record for her the place she came from--is simply too good not to be seen. It's quiet, and beautiful, and tragic, and funny. What more can we ask for.
